Space Dance in the Tube

“Space Dance in the Tube” is an experience and an expression of movement, a new form of communication and awareness based on Butoh dance. The body is not a tool for expressing a story, the body is a story in itself. A transparent fabric tube made of special stretching material is suspended by ropes and used as an architectural object for this demonstration. The feelings and information participants receive by touching and interacting with the Tube from the inside become an extension of their body. The images they make with their bodies are observed by onlookers outside the Tube. The recovery of the wildness within mankind and the rebirth of this awareness is essential.

Space Dance is a collaboration between Dance, Architecture, Information Technology, and Design. Founder Tetsuro Fukuhara is an experimental New Butoh dancer, choreographer, writer, and director of Tokyo Space Dance. He belongs to the second generation of Butoh artists. “Space Dance in the Robotic Universe” was one of twenty performances short-listed by an international jury for the UNESCO Digital Arts Award.

Followed by a reception.
