Street dance and Butoh combine to explore a radically minimalist aesthetic featuring cool elegance and sudden shock waves of movement. Tokyo-based multidisciplinary artist Hiroaki Umeda is a performer, sound artist and lighting designer whose work is both sublime and violent, and very much in touch with his contemporary Japanese roots.
In the spectacular and high tension Holistic Strata he appears almost to dissolve in a hurricane of digital images. In Haptic, beautiful bright hues shift and morph in relation to his fluid movements, creating an exquisite visual and sonic experience.
Holistic Strata / Haptic plays as part of the London International Mim Festival.
