E073: “Puzzle Creature” by Neon Dance


A theatrical production drawing inspiration from the world of Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins, produced by an internationally-acclaimed dance company. Referring to Helen Keller, who is the source of Arakawa and Gins’ creation, dancers intensively use both Japanese and English sign language in this performance. In addition, three-dimensional music, lighting, and apparatuses stimulate the audience’s physical sensations and weave a language of words that make no sense. Anyone in the audience no matter their background can “feel” the production, leading to communication and exchange between the audience and the performers.
