Akram Khan: Chotto Desh

2018.8.17 (Fri.) - 2018.8.18 (Sat.)

Journey with a young boy through a mysterious, fairytale world
A summer-holiday dance treat for all ages, featuring the journey of a young boy with a cultural heritage spanning both Britain and Bangladesh, who dreams of becoming a dancer. Projection mapping and music are used effectively to portray a fairytale world, in a show as stunning for its visuals as its dancing. The “chotto desh” of the title is Bengali for “small homeland.”

Ito Kaori: Je danse parce que je me méfie des mots / I dance because I do not trust words

2018.8.4 (Sat.) - 2018.8.5 (Sun.)

Estranged father and daughter bridge a gap to reunite
"I  dance because I do not trust words" is a duet by dancer and choreographer Ito Kaori and her father, the sculptor Ito Hiroshi. Enjoying a stellar career in France, Ito Kaori put together a work that addresses head on her relationship with her father, in order to restore something that had been lost. Estranged due to a gulf that had arisen between them, father and daughter join forces here to express in dance an intimate relationship that is distant, yet close.
