Challenge of the Silver “Figures in the shadow, Figures in the light”

Video work

ANDO Yoko / KANEMAKI Isao[Japan]


An installation featuring stage lighting and senior dancers. Led by dancer and choreographer ANDO Yoko, it was produced as part of a seniors’ dance project, which conducts workshops and productions across Kanagawa Prefecture. It captures the moment when the dancers—60+ years old with no performing experience—destroy the concept of dance and discover “themselves as a dance” in their exploration of the relationship between the body and the outside world.
