Performing Artists from Japan

Kinetic Art is a dance troupe from Japan founded in 2011. Started as a collective of unique breakdancers with strengths in flexibility and creativity beyond conventional movements, Kinetic Art has developed a style often described as somewhere in between breakdance, contortion and partnering dance. Since its inception, Kinetic Art has worked in and out of the hip hop scene, in circus, theatres and experimental dance. Selected works
• Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain : Arte TV award
• Cirque du Soleil’s One Night For One Drop
• FIS Alpine Ski World Cup


“It takes two to tangle”. With the combination of Japanese art of Ayatori (strings game traditionally played with fingers) and the intertwining acrobatic dance of Kinetic Art, Tangle explores the interdependancy of human nature and one’s own reactions to others by dancing with ropes, a representation of such in-between ties, and full body-scale Ayatori with its intricate geometrical patterns, all created in time to the music.


This was a first Piece about love and relationships that Kinetic Art has choreographed.

Festival du Cirque de Demain
