Dance, Physical Theatre, Media, Intercultural
INNER-MINDS-EYES is a duo-company which British Caribbean dancer/choreographer Denzil and Japanese choreographer/ dance artist Aoba have established since 2009.
Their artistic directions and choreography aim to challenge what performance is; fusing their strong embodiment of their own cultural backgrounds, collective fusion of dance styles (Street and Breaking, contemporary, circus techniques, traditional African & Caribbean & Asian dances, Contact Improvisation), and physical theatre into the new form of dance art, and to challenge human objectives and perceptions.
Their works sometimes include multiple creations of media forms such as film recording and editing, installations, digital performance, film choreography, theatre creation onto film and live-cinema.
Their dance works are performed by SEZDRENAH, The INNER-MINDS-EYES’s performance body, which is a black male oriented dance troupe. The nature of the troupe formed by Black male dancers is unique and rare in UK, and this tackles and challenges the racial conventions that resonate in the field of performing arts.
To continue to tackle and challenge to compete on an intercultural perception and expectation, raise standards of stage – This is the main significances of INNER-MINDS-EYES’s vision.
