Noism0/Noism1 BOUNDARY
Tokyo performance

Noism1 presents a new work by Un Yamada, a guest choreographer who leads one of Japan’s leading contemporary dance companies. Additionally, the mature dancers of Noism0 presents a world premiere by Jo Kanamori, Artistic Director of Noism Company Niigata.
As it happens, two choreographers simultaneously raise the same theme “BOUNDARY”. Giving contours. Separating. And crossing the boundary. Jo Kanamori and Un Yamada. Two works by two choreographers. A new double bill around the boundary.
