EMAKI is the latest work from Daniel Belton and Good Company Arts, which connects Asian and South Pacific cultures in a reflection on space, nature, and art.
Using the construct of the picture scroll and the ancient art of Suminagashi, the dancer figure voyages through digitized forms suggesting sentient hills, mountains, ocean, geology, weather systems and the Five Elements. Japanese dancer Meri Otoshi embodies in her movement a choreographic meditation and a physical response to the multi-dimensional world of the EMAKI picture scroll. Through a series of narratives, Meri Otoshi conveys the human figure held deeply in nature.
EMAKI fuses dance, sound and light with state of the art technology.
