NEW CREATION 2017

DREAMS OF LIGHT

 

Riuchi – warrior and alchemist all at once – comes from the imagination of performer’s Asian identity. Rooted in traditional Japanese rituals, arts and techniques, Riuchi bridges the gap between ancient and futuristic – mashing up the aesthetic of Japanese animation and the realm of classic Asian movies. From this combination emerges an emotional landscape in an imaginary world nourished by both old traditional tales and futuristic science ction. A search for destiny in Asian legend told through the use of modern technology, this poignant story unfolds through the skilled movements of the artist, inviting the audience into another realm and another time in an atmospheric show suitable for all ages.
