presents Holistic Strata · JP
Hiroaki Umeda is a multidisciplinary artist who works as a choreographer and audiovisual creator.
His work is both minimal and radical, subtle and violent, and is created to be “experienced” in a direct manner. The perfect equation between movement and new technologies.
For longer than a decade, from his S20 company, he has explored the interceptions between body and mind, senses, spaces and time in his choreographies and installations.
The impressive performance Holistic Strata, leaves nobody indifferent. Umeda combines the physical aspect of the dance with digital abstractions, experimental techno and sound landscapes in a holistic living organism in which all movements transcendentally coalesce into a harmony. Immersed in this harmonious world the audience ́s senses are challenged to the limit: to experience sensations preceding the materialization of emotions.
