霧の国 - LAND DES NEBELS - Contemporary dance - JAPANESE theatrical world
“Am blassen Meeresstrande saß ich gedankenbekümmert und einsam”
The man talks to himself about deceased lover, himself and love. Fog covering the world makes him invite into a dream as if looking the back of the magic mirror. Whole story is inspired by poem of Heinrich Heine.

Contemporary dance - Hybrid pop
The word 八(hachi) means "8" in Japanese. The big theme of this piece is the ENCOUTERING something that we didn’t know before. This choreography idea was born when we Japanese took on subway U8 in Berlin. In that small box, there were special atmosphere, vibration of the train, stories of each humans, the air and its smell, and languages we didn't know. And these had a special impact on us. You would be able to find 8 keywords while this piece. We are having choreography's tasks from the words that are started from “U”.
This work is collaborating with kosmosuna of the genre called hybrid pop. The name Kosmosuna means “Cosmos” and “Suna” (Japanese for Sand). Both of these elements represent for us, the idea of something intangible, ethereal or immaterial. They gave us composing for this choreography. We hope that this collaboration with their world and the world of choreography will be created a new unknown.

KosmoSuna's music is built on a dialogue between ancestral and contemporary sounds. The animal instinct of singing is rooted into a world of machine noises that resonate like a heartbeat. In perpetual sound and musical experimentation, they evolve like a tree seeking to prolong it's vitality in an ultra connected world.
