Tomohiko Tsujimoto, Koharu Sugawara


Nine participants, aged between 16 and 22 and from different backgrounds, were selected from among many applicants to participate in "Art Camp for under 22 Vol. 7: Human Beginnings", in which they explored their "self" with dancer/choreographer Tomohiko Tsujimoto and Koharu Sugawara. Asitananisl?" The first time the event was held, the number of visitors was about 1,000. This documentary video records the process of creating a performance in a town operated by Mori Building, where images such as "masculinity" and "femininity," "urbanity" and "nature" intersect and are discussed with fellow performers. We invite you to view the intense time that each participant spent in the workshop, as they struggled to find their own unique expression. Why don't you come and explore what is your own identity?
