TDT is thrilled to present a double bill where company and guest dancers will share the stage through two new enticing works. Long-time Company Dancer Yuichiro Inoue choreographs his first full piece KIOKU NO MA – 記憶の間, with members of the ensemble, reflective of his virtuosic career with TDT.  Artistic duo KINAJ (AJ Velasco and Kin Nguien) shares ALIENS, a piece that incorporates their cross-genre practices in street styles and contemporary dance, building upon the ideas and conversations they began during their 2022/23 Pilot Episodes residency at TDT.

KIOKU NO MA – 記憶の間, a work by TDT dancer and choreographer Yuichiro Inoue, explores memory and consciousness through sensorial connections and recollections with three dancers. Rooted in the Japanese terms 記 (Ki) “record” or “write down” and 憶 (Oku) “memory “recollection.” Kioku represents the ability to remember and store memories. The incorporation of Ma (間) emphasizes Japanese aesthetics, highlighting beauty in intervals, pauses, and emptiness, contributing to harmony and balance. Ma refers to intentional use of empty space in design, pauses in time, and intervals between events for enhanced rhythm and reflection. The particle の indicates possession or association between nouns.

A cosmic odyssey developed through conversations with our interstellar ensemble, ALIENS by KINAJ, explores the metaphysical experience on earth through the eyes of space immigrants.  Navigating Disconnection and Connection, we observe the stories of 3 beings who search for their acceptance, visibility, and freedom. Empathy and Communication create space, Cyphers unlock portals for authentic expression and arrays of energy exchange – transcending set movement.  ALIENS is a collaborative act of individual and collective exploration, where bodies vocalize a language through space, systems and structures are probed, and individual stories converge.

Advisory: Potential haze, loud noises and non-strobe flashing lights are used during the show for special effects.

Accessibility Info: Unfortunately the Winchester Street Theatre is not currently wheelchair accessible. There are three steps outside of the front entrance, a small platform, and then three more steps to the lobby (a straight hallway that then leads you to the theatre). To access the private gender-neutral restrooms, there are five additional steps at the end of the lobby. The seats in the theatre are on risers with stairs; please contact info@tdt.org if you have any questions regarding accessing our space. Click here for full access details.
