Dance performance in Aomori


While being in Aomori we were lucky enough to go to a contemporary dance performance created by Yamashita Shohei, a very creative artist

I convinced him afterwards that I would be allowed to photograph the scene + set and this is the result. No idea what they really said (it was all in Japanese and this was way beyond our language skills), but it was absolutely mesmerizing and fantastic.

In general everything was unique and handmade

including the masks (Japan is famous for Noh-masks used in classical theatre to express feelings, emotions, etc.)

Together with light this creates very interesting environments

And in the entrance hall they put the life-size mannequin in the end which really looked a bit like froma Tim Burton movie

The images are soft because of post-processing… (no, it’s no print or poster)
