★Message from Artist★
This is a work-in-progress project to create a performance work based on the theme of “ambiguous state of border” through deconstruction of the performance work “ENIGMA”, which premiered in 2012, Kyoto. It tries to explore possibilities of recreation with specialists from different fields, such as, words, light, sound, and video. A dancer, Yoko Koike, looks back at the past work by words and shares the reflection with other project members. They would collectively recreate it while working in a remote way. The outcome will be shown both in a physical venue and online as a performance and talk on 20 November, 2020.
