Performance: Kyoto Promenades blanches

As part of the Kyoto Art Center’s Artist in Residence Program, choreographer Alain Michard (Villa Kujoyama 2001 Resident) and sculptor Mathias Poisson began their artist in residency term at the end of September. For Nuit Blanche Kyoto 2017 the two have planned a unique walking experience with this work continuing from the theme of city and body.
Participants will be in groups of two and walk around the area near the Kyoto Art Center. One person will wear opaque white glasses and the other will serve as a guide. What kinds of images will spring forth, while walking around the city relying on senses of smell, hearing, and touch?

Target participant: Over 8-years old, be physically able to walk in pairs for the full 90 min experience*, also available for a single participant
Limit: Each performance is limited to 27 people, reservations required (same day walk-ins may be possible if space is available)
*Please wear shoes and clothing comfortable for walking.
