Dzone Festival 2023 ORU standalone production


Theater company headed by Kanako Suzuki. It has been producing “choreography montage” works since 2019. ORU advocates and practices “choreography montage,” which comprises multiple layers of freestanding art in other genres (theater, dance, art, music, etc.). The works are created with an awareness of maintaining each sphere on an equal footing, and by keeping in mind that each art form exists independently without merging. This does not mean that everything is disconnected; the original meaning of montage in French is “assembly,” and the troupe creates its dance using dance notation.
