Kagemu Black Sun

If Japanese culture champions the minimum as the epitome of expression, then Kagemu’s mesmerizing Black Sun is that idea at its most visual. Artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa and dancer Katsumi Sakakura’s collaborative project uses digital projections alongside a mixture of street dance, martial arts, and Japanese iconography to create a simple but powerful piece of performance.

To create it, Hanabusa recorded Sakahura’s performance and analysed the dance frame by frame in order to lay out the graphics in the correct position.
