When we change, the city changes: An interactive performance about new ways of living
Following research in Manila, Vientiane, Kuala Lumpur, and Tokyo, Manila-based performance-maker JK Anicoche and up-and-coming Japanese architect Rick Yamakawa create an interactive performance. Urban space in Japan comprises “aisles” for going somewhere. This project emerged from the pair’s desire to discover and make “isles” that can be anchored and visited in these aisles. The results radically transform the familiar landscape of the city, presenting insights and inspirations.
10/ 28 (Mon) – 11/10 (Sun)
|Venue||Locations around Toshima
Venue and schedule information TBA
