Location:：Dōgo shopping arcade Opening on：July 20, 2014 17:00- Time：17:00〜 2014
The performance was composed of two parts: a children’s parade, and a fusion of an installation by Fujiko Nakaya and a performance by Kaiji Moriyama. “LIVE BONE” was a performance by Kaiji Moriyama (dance & choreography), Kodue Hibino (costume), and Kohske Kawase (music). Hibino held a workshop in advance to make hats in the shape of an egret with 500 children. These children then wore the hats and were choreographed by Moriyama to create the special “BONE” dance around local shopping arcades. The second half of the performance was staged at the northern façade of the Dōgo Onsen Honkan, with Moriyama slipping through the people standing on the paving stones. Fog then suddenly transformed the space for a dramatic, mystical finale.
Born in Kanagawa in 1973, Moriyama is a dancer/choreographer. His solo work “Katana” in 2005 was acclaimed as “a dance of amazing concentration by an amazing dancer" by New York Times writer Anna Kisselgoff, and in 2007 was invited to perform at the Venice Biennale. In 2012, he received the Geijutsu Senshō Novice Award in dance and the Eguchi Takaya Award for “Mandara no Uchū” (New National Theatre, Tokyo). He has been active in physical expression through the media of film, theater, imagery, photography, and more.

Born in Kyoto in 1970 and grew up in Tokyo. Since his debut as an artist in 2002 with music for the illumination “Long Autumn Sweet Thing,” Kawase has continued to seek “things having a wide opening and depth.” He participated in the Aichi Expo 2005. His music for the film work “PopulouSCAPE” was lauded for his grandiose but romantic composition, which was said to have “breathed soul into the imagery”.
