Hiroaki Umeda/S20 (Tokyo)
Haptic + Holistic Strata
Presented by the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival and The Dance Centre
Friday-Sunday January 25-27, 8pm
Post-show artist talkback January 26
Hiroaki Umeda is one of Japan's most exciting artists, bringing together light, sound and movement with astonishing force and style. Haptic plays with the sensation of colour, drenching the stage in layers of red, blue and purple, framing Umeda's constantly moving body. In Holistic Strata he is bathed in pinpoints of light, swaying with and against a torrential flow of racing light particles, creating an impact that is both disorientating and spellbinding. www.hiroakiumeda.com www.quaternaire.org
