Inspired by Ravel’s suite “Miroirs”, reality and mirage intersect – through the digital art, space, light, and music reflects on the dancers’ bodies.

Original story, direction and piano by Mana FUKUI, who recently returned to Japan after 20 years of performing in Europe. The dancer is Motoko HIRAYAMA, an award-winning choreographer/director who has choreographed and directed many works for the New National Theatre and other venues. The dancer and actor Kazuma Glen is an award-winning dancer who has studied as a dancer in Japan and abroad and has won many awards on the street and in the academic scene. The visual programming will be done by the award-winning artist Kanda RYU (Kezzardrix), who has worked on live visuals and music videos for various artists in Japan and abroad, and has won awards at Ars Electronica.

Based on the contradiction between the “self” as seen in the mirror and the “gaze” of others, he explores the harmony between the “world/totality” and the individual, and the relationship between the two. It asks endless questions about involvement.
