    North Melbourne Town Hall 521 Queensberry St, North Melbourne

    Arts House will play host to the world premiere of the latest in Fujimoto’s ongoing exploration into sound and light: power of one #distortion will offer another glimpse beyond the boundaries of the visible. In keeping with the evolving nature of the artist’s work, it will both speak to earlier iterations of the series (in this case drawing on the same aural components featured in test pattern 2) while presenting curious new forms through which to perceive it. Be there for its unveiling.

    These works are part of Spectral: a series of installations and performances that dive into the spaces between sound and light. From immersive interruptions that capture the mind, to synaesthetic voyages beyond the boundaries of the body, these works demand to be experienced. For more information, please click HERE

    Heralded as the "Nijinsky of butoh", Japan's legendary Akira Kasai brings to Melbourne his tour-de-force work Pollen Revolution.

    Akira Kasai's own son performs this riveting solo, a surreal and startling journey through time, cultures, and states of being. Kasai's striking onstage personae morph from kabuki performer to street dancer to solitary actor while his movement shifts between classical Japanese, hip-hop and the soulful otherworlds of butoh.

    Beginning with what may seem like traditional Japanese dance, this daring solo performance sees costumes fly away, madness unleashed and representations of gender probed. Pollen Revolution is a masterly work from a choreographer who is still reshaping and reinventing butoh itself.

    Date and Time: Friday 21  and Saturday 22 February 2020 8:00 pm

    Venue: Dancehouse - Sylvia Staehli Theatre 150 Princes Street, North Carlton, Victoria 3054
