Damien Jalet has travelled the world, infusing his dance with images of the myths, religions, and rituals of each country that he visits, and reflecting the conflict between body and mind in the dance. Nawa Kohei explores materials and techniques through his sculptures and installations that communicate an organic world view while successfully combining image and materiality. As the basic concept for this part of their collaborative project, Jalet and Nawa chose “vessel”—the background to everything that is subsumed by life and death, and the cycles of earth and life. Incorporating into the stage design a breadth of physical properties that extends to gases, liquids, and solids, they attempt to create a dynamic merger between the stage and the bodies of the dancers as they constantly transform their figures.
