Takao Kawaguchi, Japan

Takao Kawaguchi wonders how many times his heart will beat before it stops. This highly physical and audio – visual performance speaks of the heatr and muscles in general, trying to locate and surpass the borders of exhaustion and endurance. It searches for the energy within the primal instincts and desires which, if we let it, can become the spring of strength. By freeing himself from the knots created with his own limbs, Takao Kawaguchi explores (his own) male body by creating higher awareness of the width of the concept of maleness – far further from the limits of purely physical signifiers. The second performer, Fuyuki Yamakawa, is the champion of Japan in the traditional Khoomei singing for which an extreme breathing control is neccessary. Amplifying his own heart beats, he gives this performance rythm that follows this alsmost surreal exploration of the origins by foreseeing the end.
