“The problem for us is not are our desires satisfied or not. The problem is how do we know what we desire” Slavoj Zizek

Since moving abroad, the artists are keenly aware of the difference between languages and cultures, and the limitations this can have on life. They noticed they were living in ‘binds’ of various kinds, even before leaving their home countries. These binds all come from their desires. They are binding themselves, finding liberty in limitation.

KINBAKU merges immersive experimental physical theater, digital, Japanese bondage and live audio together to create abstract narratives that focus on social problems.

Esteban Fourmi and Aoi Nakamura are two performing artists coming from the field of Dance Theatre. Their desire for new discoveries and ways of expression have pushed them to collaborate together to create their own work, mixing different elements which they find necessary to use.

They create environments where the audience become an essential part of their work, and where the performer takes risks.
