Last month Miku and I took our collaboration to the next boarder: Japan!
We have explored Japan’s city Tokyo and the rural environment of the Izu Peninsula through film and movement.
Whilst filming the theme of the individual versus the mass crept into our frame. Not only does Japan have millions of people living in just one city or travelling over the many highways and train tracks, it also has a great individual disconnect with its direct surroundings.
Dark subject matters as loneliness and the high suicide rate amongst the young generation made their appearance.
The beauty of Japan’s unplanned architectural compositions, however, gave us calligraphy lines to move and explore.
Miku and I are looking to deepen this movement research in a country that has so many beautiful contrasts.
So stay tuned for more exciting projects across borders @AnnePointNL
