Blind piece (work in progress)
a dance piece by Sayaka Akitsu


"Blind piece" is a dance project. This piece includes scenes that the audience will not see. Following the sound of a bell, I'll ask the audience to close their eyes at certain moments during the piece. Dance scenes will alternate with blind moments while viewers imagine, think, feel and remember. In a dialogue with the public, the piece explores the notion of happiness.
