Anan Atoyama, Japanese choreographer settled in France, after living many experiences throughout the four continents, pays tribute to Kazuo Ohno with Hidden Body, and translates his vision of dance to us.
She considers that Kazuo Ohno had the ability to connect his gesture to the universal by personal emotions; he accepted the multiple colors of self and expressed them throughout multiple ways of beings, as if his body contained the Universe.
The choreographer deepens with her dancers, coming from different cultures, the connections between their memories and their bodies, in order to live again each moment with a true energy. By drawing into their identity and their diversity, Hidden Body blossoms in the ephemeral aspect of existence.
Anan Atoyama collaborates with the composer and musician Keiji Haino, who attended the opening performance of La Argentina by Kazuo Ohno, and who worked with him. Their artistic dialogue for Hidden Body offers an experience made of multiple layers of imagination, as well as visual and hearing sensations.
