Am I a man who had dreamed he was a butterfly or a butterfly dreaming he was a man? – Zhuangzi The Butterfly Dream
Yui Kawaguchi translates in Mugen (Japanese: illusion, infinity) the classical elements of Japanese Nō theatre into a hypnotic interplay of dance, music and light. In a fast-paced choreography, Joy Alpuerto Ritter seems to outright fly through an installation on stage. She is fueled by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, who single-handedly creates a sound atmosphere of orchestral quality with his instruments. Although each element exists in its own cosmos, a trance-like flow is created through ever new encounters, changing tempos and incidences of light, dissolving the boundaries between fantasy and reality, dream and wakefulness.
YUI KAWAGUCHI studied dance and theatre in Tokyo. Since 2005, she has been working in Berlin, where she works in collaboration with various artists (Nico and the Navigators, Flying Steps und Helena Waldmann u.a.) and also develops her own pieces, which are invited to numerous festivals worldwide. She is part of the original cast of Flying Bach, for which she choreographed the contemporary part. Her dance installations MatchAtria and andropolaroid (Tanzpreis Köln), have been enthusiastically received by the public and press. Since 2008 she has been directing the series Die Stadt im Klavier with pianist Aki Takase. 2018 her latest joint project Da Capo was created.
Joy Alpuerto Ritter (born 1982 in Los Angeles/ USA) graduated from the Palucca Dance School in Dresden in 2004. After that she started working as a contemporary freelance dancer in and around Berlin with many choreographers, among them Christoph Winkler, in whose Witch Dance Project she danced at Sophiensæle in 2016. Since 2013 she has been a dancer of the Akram Khan Dance Company and the company Wangramirez. In 2016 she has been nominated as "outstanding female dancer" (modern) by the National Dance Awards UK.
Mohammad Reza Mortazavi lives in Berlin as a composer and musician. He plays tombak and daf, two percussion instruments, which influenced him since his childhood in Isfahan (Iran). His minimalist compositions are dedicated to a balance between focus and letting go. Inspired by sounds of daily life and nature, his emotional connection to life gets transformed into vibrant and polyphone rhythms. The award-winning musician presents his music both solo and in international projects with other musicians as well as producers, theatres and dancers.
