Through stunning movement, SHINKA explores the mystery of living beings.
Mankind has developed a complicated mechanized and sprawling society … rapidly. We have been destroying it and developing it repeatedly throughout history. What do we really want? And where are we going? Can we create a world that we want to live? Without destroying one another?
SHINKA explains that we are all part of this eco-system and one with conscious energy, evolving every single day, every single moment… together.
By using Japanese Butoh, Trish Arnold Movement, contemporary dance, and other theatrical elements, SHINKA explores and expresses life itself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
