‘When I danced with a group whilst the music was playing I was asked if I could hear the music, as my movements matched with the music. It was a very strange and interesting point for me as I did not hear the music and was dancing with my feelings and emotions. This question influenced and inspired me to examine sound and music from a deaf person’s perspective.’  Chisato Minamimura

body>data>space is thrilled to announce that RING THE CHANGES+ will premiere at the Southbank Centre on Friday 5th September as part of Unlimited Festival, Southbank Centre’s festival that celebrates the artistic vision and originality of disabled artists

RING THE CHANGES+ is an interactive dance performance created by deaf dance artist Chisato Minamimura with 3 dancers, in collaboration with Nick Rothwell and body>data>space

Choreographing what Chisato calls ‘visual sound/music’, the project uses interactive technology developed by software artist Nick Rothwell (body>data>space) to engage hearing and non-hearing audiences in a visual and sense experience

RING THE CHANGES+ will be presented alongside ‘Remember When’, an intimate dance solo created and performed by Marc Brew
