Apples fall down, why doesn't the moon?
a dance performance by Sayaka Akitsu



This dance solo is my personal journey induced by the intersection of Apples and physics.

The piece explores various physical responses triggered by performers body in relation to forces such as gravity, momentum and acceleration. The journey continues following a scientific yet poetic trajectory until it finds a simple answer.

Special Thanks to: Artemis Lampiri, Yuki goda, Kyoko Nomura, Or Hakim, Tashi Iwaoka, Kei Tsujimoto
