You, who dance, are I.
Itoh_Kim's_Dance_Selection Kim Itoh expresses the unusual in ordinary daily life and various forms of human existence by adding a touch of sarcasm and his characteristic humor, pursuing his own unique physical expression. Winning the International Choreography Award in Bagnolet, France, led the up-and-coming choreographer to abruptly expand his sphere of activities to the world and energetically publish new works, and he will appear at the New National Theatre, Tokyo again.
Kim Itoh's charm is condensed in the three works selected based on the theme, "you and I", the smallest unit of communication. These include the Japanese premiére of Butterfly and Me, which was performed and created a sensation at the Melbourne Festival in October 2000.
In January this year 2002, Kim Itoh has won the Terayama Shuji Award for the 1st Asahi Theatrical Art Prize.
