・・この絶えず上下左右に揺すられ跳躍している真四角な空っぽの夜が公然と君臨しているのだった。

It is not only nothingness (mu), but here ‘nothing’ has a form, this is exactly the space that butoh is searching for…Dominique is searching for a new invisible space which only comes out of her body, beyond any intellectual meanings… Shinichi Takeshige, dance critic

‘Black Box’ installation opens tomorrow 16 October in an Edo-period storehouse, Gallery éf in Asakusa. Performances will be on 19 and 20 October, bringing the installation and space to life with live music and sound composition by Arihiro Yamada and lighting design by Atsushi Kakumoto.

This piece which was orignially developed at the Kazuo Ohno studio has received a very good response from Japanese dance critics and has now been reworked for the unique space of Gallery éf as a site-specific piece.
