Production Details / Press Releases

FUR is a meeting with Japanese dancer Aya Toraiwa. It started as a research in the studio around Aya’s specificities – her body, rhythms, contours, colours and energies with a special focus on her extra-long hair. Treated in its potential to cover oneself with one’s own hair, similar to an animal’s fur, the hair becomes at once a protection and a prosthesis: a furry outer layer and prolongation of Aya’s body and energies. Curious, emerging presences oscillate between front and back. The somewhat fragile material around the body reveals what seems hidden and functions as a transition between the inner and the outer world. Together we engage in constellations of being and disfiguring, in which the self itself becomes the stage: the space, place and matter that is the subject of observation. Of contemplation. With FUR, I continue my series of works which attempt to create distinct and personal portraits through a purely physical approach, moulding respective rhythms and energies into choreographed experiences.
