transit- Nijinski à minuit

Ten Dancers from nine different countries respond to one of the most radical figures of Japanese Avantgarde dance after 1969, Ko Murobushi. Within his dance, he aimed to find an Outside of the chronological, power and production- based time. His goal was to waste all of his energy on stage, so no one can use his body as a economic working force or for the military. After his death, dancers from all over the world got invited by his archive manager to Tokyo, to see his material and poetry- afterwards each one responded to him with their body. The music was composed to the images by the Austrian sound artist Michael Fischer, who was part of the Noise scene in Japan.
