Japan 2020: F/bridge
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
DANCE PJ REVO
Winner of the French Embassy Prize for Young Choreographers and the Yokohama Outstanding New Artist Prize, amongst others, Koichiro Tamura’s (DANCE PJ REVO) choreography bursts with visual ideas. Tamura’s experimental cocktail of contemporary and hip hop dance often pairs dancers with a variety of everyday industrial and urban props such as tyres, bricks and machine parts.
For F/BRIDGE the dancers are each paired with a breeze block to create a new dynamic, perfectly fused by Tamura’s choreography. The blocks become extensions of the dancer’s bodies, utilized in seemingly endlessly inventive ways – stacked, swung, carried, stood on, thrown – to create an exciting, fresh and very contemporary choreography.
