(21 Oct.- 4 Nov. 2016)
"Hybrid - Rhythm & Dance" which was first performed on 25th-27th March 2016 at New National Theatre Tokyo is now touring Spain.
"Hybrid - Rhythm & Dance" is the third in a series that began in 2008 when the company first took up the challenge of developing a piece around STRAVINSKY's The Rites of Spring. Then in 2013, Trip Triptych, a performance deviced around the music of three composers RAVEL, DEBUSSY and SATY was presented. This third offering in the music series features the work of the ever-evolving choreographer and dancer, HIRAYAMA Motoko, exploring the roots of dance & rhythm of the txalaparta (a traditional percussion instrument from the Basque region of Spain.)
