Japanese anime and manga alike provide the perfect ingredients for audiences to experience their fantasies with a feeling of in-depth involvement. Through movement, spoken word, costume & play, dance artists Marcus Alessandrini & Jessica Walker investigate how the apocalyptic and nihilistic nature of anime as a product of the post-war "Asian Renaissance" is having an impact in our current Western society.

Choreographers: Jessica Walker & Marcus Alessandrini
