Based on the theme of "Granatus", we will propose two works cut from different directions of dance version and video artist version. Please enjoy the expressions captured from each perspective.

“Granatus” is the Latin word for gem garnet, which means “seed”. Known as the stone of trust and love, it is a symbol of fruit. It is a stone that activates the energy of both the body and the spirit, and it turns negative emotions such as fear from life's anxiety and suffering into bright energy, raising the feeling of loving people and the generous heart. I want to connect with as many people as possible and send power like that stone. Give seeds and hope that the flowers will open in the imagination of the viewer. (Ida)

We turn the uncertain feelings of the future into bright energy. I expressed the process with colors and abstract patterns. (Wada)

Location: Oza Hoshiike
