7 DEADLY SINS: PRIDE

Hyogo Center for Performing Arts, Kobe, July 2016

Collaborating as dancer, performer, choreographer and set designer with award-winning Japanese concert pianist Eriko Makimura on her projects exploring the 7 deadly sins through classical piano repertoire and performatively staged concerts.

Through a fierce program of challenging classical piano compositions by De Falla, Chopin, Stravinsky and Cage (amongst others) as well as choregraphic pieces and performative sequences, the sin of pride or arrogance was examined from both a European and a Japanese perspective.
