About the event

Having staged numerous performances inside and outside Japan, Nibroll’s next work unfolds on the island of Inujima, which is located in Japan’s Inland Sea. It once had a flourishing industry in smelting and quarrying, and was reportedly home to about 5,000 people at its height. Today, however, it has only a little over 40 residents. The performance is staged on the former site of a power station left on the island as if to symbolize the positive and negative sides of the times. It explores the past and future of Inujima, and the shape of the new world, through the medium of body. It is the first outdoor performance by Nibroll since “see / saw,” which the company staged at the Art Festival of the Earth Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in 2012.



Can this hand reach the world? How can this body that only moves now at this time convey to you the sliver of a span in which that person lived? The facts of an instant are not caught by the eye and cannot be properly portrayed by something like words. A landscape is lost by words and, as might be expected, by silence, too. The world changes in too short of a time, and thought can no longer keep abreast of its pace. We shall wait here for the emergence of facts beyond our imagination, from things, from lines, from time, and from body.
