BNP Paribas to support Dance Archive Project in Tokyo.

Paris: At Warehouse TERRADA, BNP Paribas will support the Dance Archive Project in Tokyo 2017, "Clear-Eyed Spirit - William Klein, Yoshito Ohno, and Anohni".

The Dance Archive Project set out to transmit contemporary dance culture to future generations through a series of experiments and conversation with audiences about the mission and potential of dance archives.

Since 2014, the Dance Archive Network has hosted the Dance Archive Project, an event combining archival sharing and dance performances. The "Yoshito Ohno Archives / Digital 3D in Motion" was born in 2016 as part of this endeavour. The purpose of this programme is to record the movements of the dancers using motion sensor technology and share them through artistic and educational videos. The recordings were made in 2016 and 2017 and the Dance Archive Network is now working on the screenplay. The Dance Archive Network is a Japanese association that works to promote and revitalise the archives of Kazuo Ohno, founder of the Butoh dance. As such, it is committed to passing on the Butoh dance culture, spreading it around the world and keeping it alive.

They are organising a demonstration to be held from 15 to 23 December 2017 at the Terrada Warehouse Gallery that will mix Butoh performances, an exhibition of photographs taken by William Klein in Tokyo at the beginning of the Butoh and virtual- and augmented-reality installations.
