Coming up: “Kunnioitus- Respect”

This coming autumn, I will be performing in a dance theatre project called “Kunnioitus- Respect.” We’ve had several workshops in May to explore the concept and try out some choreography and improvisation. Now we’re on summer break and will resume working in August.

The subject matter “respect” fascinates me in its complexity and political, cultural weight in the current Finnish society and the world at large. As an immigrant artist who moved from Japan to Finland, I often struggle with the ideal of respect that everyone should have his or her own place in the world to be who he or she is without being disregarded, humiliated or mocked by others. It’s just not enough to demand respect from others and push one’s own identity or ideology forward. To me, that’s like building an ivory tower for oneself where no one can visit. Respect is a relational word, which means that we cannot talk about it or do something about it without reaching out to the other side. At the very least, respect plays a key role in human relationship of any kind.

So, I’m excited to ponder deeper on it with other artists through our bodies on the stage. No idea how it will turn out to be as a performance. But it will surely be a whole new experience for me on many levels!

There will be only 5 performances. Mark your calendar now and book your tickets soon!
