RE/PLAY Dance Edit was first premiered by Junnosuke Tada’s theatre company, Tokyo Deathlock, in Tokyo in 2011. It was well-received by the Japanese audiences and reputable Japanese critics…
RE/PLAY Dance Edit is based on themes such as “unrepeatable” and “interruption” where actors continue their movements without interference from each other -accompanied by pop music- to create a work that express time and life ironically through relentless repetition. Juxtaposing their widely varying physiques, perspectives on dance, and choreography, the performance deconstructs the audience’s perception of dance/movement.
Tada’s idea is to see this scenario with Japanese and Southeast Asian physicality – the Asian physicality – in the upcoming creation in Singapore with TheatreWorks. Each dancer will make their own performance based on their own “dance/not dance” and “movement/choreography”. Creating a space where the dancers as well as the audience will be able to rethink, investigate, and develop their perspective on dance.
