After performing his Adapting for Distortion piece for packed rooms at TodaysArt 2009, Hiroaki Umeda will return to The Hague to present his latest work: Holistic Strata. Umeda generates an intense visual experience with his performances, characterized by minimalistic subtlety and radical expression, combined with technological manipulations of light and sound. In Holistic Strata, he translates physical data, generated from his own muscle movements, into computer data in real time.
Hiroaki Umeda, a choreographer who has been attracting attention in Japan and abroad with his « visual performances » blending imagery, sound and dance, presents his brand new dance piece. Based on his own set designs mixing imagery and sound, Hiroaki Umeda equivalently combines in his pieces elements of light, sound, and the human body. For his audiences, these performances are opportunities to experience their own bodies’ primary reactions triggered by intensely stimulating light and sound. Look forward to a novel type of performance that will rock your body senses and challenge your perception.
