  3. Intimate Ground is a movement exploration for two performers: Allie Hankins and myself. We embody intimate feelings and thoughts between two people through actions and movement, proposing that multiple emotions coexist together within the notion of intimacy such as longing, contentment, lost of self and disorientation. While using each other as a subject of intimacy, we also let our own personal experience and memory dance with us. The evening dress functions as bending gender norm in a formal manner as well as visually integrating the performer's body into the architecture. By placing the action at the stairs, it also denies the purpose and function of stairs, intervening the pedestrian to walk up and down.

  4. Three Male Strangers At Japan (English Version)
    Takahiro Yamamoto
    15 min Performance

    Three Male Strangers At Japan explores the power and the harmony of verbal language with the corresponding gestural movements, in this case specifically related to contemporary Japanese men. Through a tryptic choreographic form, this fifteen-minutes performance displays impersonation of three Japanese male strangers, each sourced and composed through observation of their vocal traits, gestural movements and walking tendencies, to meditate the idea of cultural specificity and the heightened everyday life.
