This is a collaborative new performance by Shikichi Osamu, winner of the French Embassy Award for Young Choreographers at the Yokohama Dance Collection 2020 Competition I, and French-based artist Sehyoung Lee during a three-month stay from June 2021. Consider the magnetic force and the ambiguousness of our bodies. There is a sensual magnetic force that all things have, however small it might be. We are “attracted” to external things as if trying to replenish something that is missing. This piece divides what was once single – like a hula hoop surrounding a body – and invites the audience in between.

Shikichi Osamu

Choreographer and dancer. Completed the master’s program at Tokyo University of the Arts.
He pushes x to the limit in order to see the whole picture. Similarly, he purposefully obscures what becomes clear about the body when it reaches a critical state. In such a situation, there is a moment when we find ourselves and our surroundings take on a stronger sense of reality and become almost poetic. This moment is the main theme of his creations. Major works announced include “happy ice-cream” (YDC2020 Comptetion I), “Shivering Mass, Loose Boundary” (TPAM 2020 Fringe / Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore), “blooming dots” (Toyooka Theater Festival 2020 Fringe / CAF Award) 2020) etc..
