11, 12 Nov, 8pm – Experimental Dance from Japan

06.11.2007

Something very special for anyone interested in contemporary experimental dance. Takayuki Fujimoto together with the dance troupe Monochrome Circus, will perform 2 pieces in Hanoi.

HG pick

Takayuki Fujimoto travels the world doing LED lighting for a variety of contemporay dance and theater pieces, sometimes with the famous Japanese group Dumb Type, of which he is a founding member, sometimes with the dance troupe Monochrome Circus. He also did the LED lighting for the most recent piece by well-known Hanoi/Paris choreographer Ea Sola. He and Monochrome Circus will perform on two evenings in Hanoi, each time at a different venue, each time doing a different piece.

This was written when they appeared in Prague about a year ago:

Refined Colors joins together two impressive personalities: Takayuki Fujimoto, member of the famous Dumb Type company, and Kosei Sakamoto, founder of the dance troupe Monochrome Circus. With their dancers they have created a multimedia dance performance combining modern technology and human motion. The performance utilizes new LED light technology which can produce 16.7 million variations of colour. Their medium examines shades, creates colourful impressions, and plays with light. Each performance is adapted to the specific culture and location of the show.

Two events, two venues, each a single performance. First “Refined Colors”, second “lost”.
