off-Nibroll





The visual director Keisuke Takahashi and choreographer Mikuni Yanaihara
formed off-Nibroll which mostly deals with the relationship between body and image, in 2005.

We intend to isolate dance from theater, and remove the barrier between audience and performers.
We fulfill this idea by using a small gallery spaces to maintain a close distance with the audiences,
and, furthermore, to form their creation with the audiences‘s existence.
By doing this, to bring the new body into their work becomes a challenge,
but it also releases the form of dance to a bigger variety group of people.
