Powerful choreography of a human’s existence and condition between dreams and reality.
Hakanai is a solo choreographic performance that unfolds through a series of images in motion. In Japanese Hakanai denotes that which is temporary and fragile, evanescent and transient, and in this case something set between dreams and reality.
"In a delicate dance between human effort and technology, Hakanaï uses technology to poetic effect." - Dedece Blog

While widely associated with nature, the term is now often used to elicit an intangible aspect of the human condition and its precariousness. It encompasses two elements: that concerning the human being as well as that related to dreams.
This symbolic relationship is the foundation of the dance composition in which a dancer gives life to a space somewhere between the borders of imagination and reality, through her interactions with the images she encounters. The images are on-stage animations that move in physical patterns according to the rhythm of the live sounds that they follow. The performance’s outcome is the revelation of a digital installation to its audience.
