In this absorbing multimedia dance work, audience members – each equipped with 3D glasses and headphone and holding a silicon heart that simultaneously transmits the performer's heartbeat – truly connect with the artist's inner and outer worlds. Inspired by the philosophy of the Japanese tea ceremony, and drawing on stunning visuals and choreography, the show intimately conveys a heartfelt encounter.

Berlin-based dancer-choreographer Yui Kawaguchi has worked extensively in the global arena and collaborated with many different types of artists. In this workshop, she focuses on how the body communicates with the outside world through interaction with music, words and space.
Exercises related to joints and abdominal muscles help participants understand the condition of their own body while breathing techniques and other approaches improve balance and precision. Physical capabilities are then explored through improvisation before undertaking a choreographed work that celebrates the sheer joy of dancing.
