A Multidisciplinary
Immersive Arts Performance


Elemental is about giving life to a performance where various artistic expressions, from music to dance, video to sculpture, poetry to theater, food to costume, can unite in one flow, one language, one body, and nourish those who live it and observe it, both in the senses and in consciousness. The interaction between performer and guest will occur through the senses. From smell to taste to sight to touch to hearing to a new insight of time and space.


The score for Elemental is based on the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, wind, space) and their connection to the 5 senses (smell, taste, sight, touch, hearing). All manifested universe is the expression of the 5 elements, and deepening our connection to them enables us to more fully relate and interact with the world we live in.
