While Tatsunori Imamura is the only Japanese dancer in this piece, he wanted to challenge himself to interact with a new group of dancers. Having participated RE/PLAY in 2012, this experience is not entirely new to Imamura. However, he still look forward to engaging with the Singaporean dancers and hopefully get new insights from there.
“I look forward to the positive interactions between different bodies, thoughts and people from different background for this creation.”
– Tatsunori Imamura, Japanese performer
1 Tell us something inspiring about yourself.
I get inspirations from what I see and hear. Images, sounds, music or noise are points of inspiration for me and I believe that these will continue to provide inspirations for me in the future. I am also inspired by things which cannot be perceived or detected by my eyes and ears as well.
2 What motivated you to take up the challenge to be part of RE/PLAY Dance Edit?
I participated in the first dance version of RE/PLAY in 2012 and met a diverse group of people. I decided to challenge this piece again because I’m curious about a new interpretation of RE/PLAY Dance Edit, through a collaboration with a different group of dancers.
3 Being part of this Singapore-Japan collaboration, what do you look forward to?
I look forward to the positive interactions between different bodies, thoughts and people from different backgrounds for this creation.
4 By the end of the production, what do you think will resonate in you?
I think what will resonate in me will be the way I deal with my body in the margin of my capacity. I will also explore how I can co-exist with other bodies.
