ALPHA (da:ns festival) with Lighting Designer Takayuki Fujimoto

Wednesday, 24 September 2014


Another world premiere at this year da:ns festival - ALPHA, a pole dance duet between Daniel Kok and Eisa Jocson, will see them collaborating with Lighting Designer Takayuki Fujimoto (Dumb Type/ Kinsei R&D) on this new work. ALPHA deploys the visceral and sensorial minefield of pole dancing, provoking questions on the politics of gender and desire, and the complicity of seduction and manipulation.


Together with the kinetic force of computer-controlled LED lighting from Takayuki Fujimoto (Dumb Type/ Kinsei R&D) and the vibrant soundscape by Marc Appart, director Arco Renz (Kobalt Works) turns the principles of ‘verticality’ and ‘circularity’ of pole dancing into a highly-embodied expression set in a synaesthetic environment.
