Nelken Line @ Kyoto Documentary

emuralabo / Koichi Emura

ABOUT

Pina Bausch was a choreographer and dancer who sadly passed away in 2009. This documentary follows the process of creating a video work in which a diverse range of citizens, including children, the elderly, the handicapped, and foreign nationals, participate in dancing in her choreographic work "Nelkenline", which represents the world of contemporary dance. The film depicts the process of the participants gathering at Heian Shrine and Kyoto's Rohm Theater in early 2021, from the first meeting through rehearsals to the actual performance where they show their own free style of dancing. The colorful outfits and bright smiles of the participants are impressive in the video.

I would like people with disabilities such as Down’s syndrome, their parents, foreign residents, children and the elderly who have not come across this sort of dance to watch this video. Of course, people from overseas are welcome to watch it too.

Artist Profile

Koichi Emura

Professor at Saga University of Arts / Videographer. He has presented video and performance works at museums and theatres as the video + performance unit “Kupikupi”. In 2011, he launched “emuralabo (Emura Lab)” and started working on collaborative productions with younger generations, mainly Saga students and graduates. We practice an attempt to reconsider “now” and “I” in a “vivid” manner through expressive activities that value conversation, intuition, and flexible judgment.​ ​
