asianTour 2011

   Because of the dramatic catastrophe which did hit Japan and the Japanese folk on March 11th., It has been impossible for me to be present at the two first planned performance of this asian tour 2011. So we decided to make a Skype internet life stream event and propose at least a screen presentation of my dance improvisation on the life music happening in Tokyo. While Tetsu Saitoh and the members of gamma/ut were playing on stage in Tokyo, I could receive the music life (with 3 second delay) and improvise on it. Through Skype it was possible to send the recording of my dance and show it on screen in background of the musician playing life. We did two performances this way, one in trio (Tetsu Saitoh doublebass, Naoki Kita violin, and myself dance) at the Kid Ailak Arthall (Tokyo) on March 18th., and the second one for the Pole Pole (Tokyo) performance with the gamma/ut ensemble on April 16th. For this second performance, I worked together with the video artist Kai Fobbe on video projection that we used as background and part of the improvisation.
After my arriving in Tokyo on April 26th. we could go on with our programmed tour in a more normal way:
