Four lifestyles. Four simultaneous dances.

Known for its liberated, pop yet sharp style of dance, this is idevian crewʼs first time to make a new work for F/T. Different teams of four male and female dancers create a performance inspired by everyday life, each dancerʼs lifestyle simultaneously transforming into dance. How are ordinary actions and bodies seen and extracted? The dancers seem to move just any way they like, though sometimes moving in unison or interfering with each other, or even escaping from the gaze of the audience. This landscape of lifestyle interweaves important concepts that reinterpret the meaning of dance: the individual and the mass, the gaze and the body, the objective and the subjective. Ide was an artist in residence at Nishi-Sugamo Arts Factory until 2010, making his latest experiment an apt one for the venue as it closes this year.
