Choreographer(s): Alan Lucien Øyen

Directed by:

Featuring:
Shoji Kojima
Daniel Proietto

Imagine the striking juxtaposition of the formality of Kabuki, the energy of Flamenco and the emotion of contemporary dance theatre.

Drawing inspiration from many sources, this dramatic work is based on the real-life experiences of its two legendary dancers. Eighty-year-old Shōji Kojima migrated to Spain from Japan to become a master of Flamenco. Argentina-born Daniel Proietto left for Japan to study the female role of Kabuki.

Kojima and Proietto contrast and complement each other exquisitely.
