Haptic + Holistic Strata
Friday-Sunday January 25-27, 8pm
Post-show artist talkback January 26
Scotiabank Dance Centre, 677 Davie St, Vancouver
Presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival
Hiroaki Umeda is one of Japan’s most exciting artists, bringing together light, sound and movement with astonishing force and style. Haptic plays with the sensation of colour, drenching the stage in layers of red, blue and purple, framing Umeda’s constantly moving body. In Holistic Strata he is bathed in pinpoints of light, swaying with and against a torrential flow of racing light particles, creating an impact that is both disorientating and spellbinding. www.hiroakiumeda.com www.quaternaire.org

Haptic is coproduced by the Théâtre de Nîmes; Festival d’Automne à Paris. Holistic Strata is produced by Yamaguchi Centre for Arts and Media. Hiroaki Umeda/S20 is supported by the EU Japan Fest, the Japan Foundation and Quaternaire.
