Akane Miyazaki Dance Performance “Identiti of Water’s edge”

  • Organization : Akane Miyazaki
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single Individual
  • Art Forms : Dance


When it becomes an everyday thing for us to be hooked on smartphones that offer no real or personal experience, surely we lack a sense of concentration in the here and now. Miyazaki hopes to grasp the physical actuality of the body not as a linear outline but as a tangible token of life itself; ambiguous, yet like the water’s edge that exists for real.
To draw out the audience’s own imagination and physical sensations, Miyazaki suggests what is needed rather than a forceful performance is a gentle “confrontation” that springs from within, such as feeling the wind while contemplating a karesansui dry rock garden and giving full rein to your imagination.
This work aims to create a space where we can concentrate on the here and now through the flesh and blood of the body.
