ELEVENPLAY × Rhizomatiks “border 2021″

A dance company, ELEVENPLAY, a director-choreographer, MIKIKO, and a collective led by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi, Rhizomatiks has presented a dance piece “border” in 2015. We elaborate and update our attempts in 2015 to build a new expression model for both online and offline experience after COVID-19.

At an on-site venue, we have created a viewing environment where you can keep social distance to watch a dance performance integrated with mobility and mixed reality technologies from multiple viewpoints.

In addition, we offer a new way of enjoying a dance performance by allowing online access, which leads to get rid of the capacity limitations of the venue.
