By partnering with Japanese artists to create a multicultural group. Still in this co-creation , sharing talents and experience spirit, our artists will work together side by side to create the Emajinarium which will take place in Japan.
Beyond our performance in the country of the rising sun, we chose to take up a real artistic challenge. Indeed, we will perform our show in collaboration with artists living in Tokyo and nearby. Without even meeting them before, Japanese dancers will create boards in parallel to those we created in France. Based on the story of the show, they will create their identities, personalities and their own interpretation, just like us.
Once our team is on the spot, French and Japanese dancers will have only 4 days to get synchronized and prepared for the live show in a beautiful place in Tokyo.
We are lovers of arts and human adventures. We are passionate by this challenge and this cultural bridge that our Japanese friends allow us to cross.
The EMAJINARIUM is above all a human adventure symbolized by the mix of types and cultures.
Almost thirty artists from the French team will travel to Japan and combine their talents with those of artists from Tokyo.
