NOTHINGBEING is a live dance performance project initiated by choreographer Takahiro Yamamoto in collaboration with Samita Sinha, David Thomson and Anna Martine Whitehead. This project investigates ways to embody the presence of nothingness, holding spaces that we could easily dismiss and considering possibilities for the unfiltered self. Based on philosophical and physical research on the approaches to nothingness as well as extensive discussions and reflections with participating artists about their belief systems and their embodied daily experiences, the performance will invite the viewers to witness and participate in the state of between-ness and duality between here and nowhere. Placing three performers in the center, Yamamoto’s choreographic approach addresses the notion of presence from multiple performative modalities such as moments of highly physical improvisational movement, a communal meditation, and internal activation of sensory memories.
