Music for a dance solo by choreographer Simon Tanguy.
Japan explores the physical and poetic vocabulary of agony. Contraction, release, fainting, waking-up, coma, fight, collapse, fall, resurrection, slow death, fast death, testament. The solo aims to realise the potential of the dancing body as intense, poetic, violent and absurd.
