digital art meets dance: Kagemu, Paris 2011

Just found this artistic duo: artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa and dancer Katsumi Sakakura, or Kagemu. This video shows (a part of, I guess) their show Black Sun, where they combine motion graphics and modern dance, inspired by Japanese martial arts. The video begins with Sakakura interacting with abstract digital figures, breaking digitally the wall / screen behind him and fighting with his own shadow, all with energetic and strong music. Enjoy (or for more videos, check on YouTube).

For more works by Hanabusa (and Kagemu) you can visit Hanabusa’s website hana-busa.jp (mainly in Japanese).
