In recent years, Seki has tried dancers to concentrate to move with their own five senses (including skin sensibility) and make audience to inspire on one’s imagination and feel the piece. And she has researched to create spatially and time-structured piece to narrow the distance between performers and audience physically and psychologically.

This time, Seki tries to approach to make the theater piece in the future and continue to search for one’s own body, feeling to others through not only visual sense but also smelling or touching.

Does the body of human and animals or plants have already known a lot of things without having experience? Seki tries to stimulate feelings of audience not only a sense of nostalgia by memories of specific scene but also feeling like crying, missing someone or having a sense of crisis.


Seki started classical ballet from childhood and contemporary dance at the age of eighteen and began showing her own choreography in 2003. In 2012, created together with Teita Iwabuchi, “Hetero” won the French Embassy Prize for Young choreographer at the Yokohama Dance Collection EX2012 and went to France for residency at le Centre national de dance contemporaine- Angers (CNDC) for four months.
