ABOUT THE GROUP
Emanating from Osaka, Japan, this group takes dance to its physical limits in a way that combines improvisational physical contact with legendary “gonzo” aesthetics. Having shown in MoMa (New York), Impuls Tanz (Vienna), Spring Dance (Utrecht), Kyoto Experiment (Kyoto), among many other places – it is safe to say their work is recognised and appreciated around the world and now having shown their work in Reykjavík Dance Festival in 2013, they return to the city to present a new project that brings their special approach to the body into conversation with members of the general public.
They work in public sites mountains, rivers, galleries, museums, theaters and alleys around the world, with performances that may seem either like a street mosh or a sophisticated dance.
Now they come to Reykjavík to work with people from the city for 5 days leading to a short performance in Listasafn Reykjavík on Sunday 28th August.
