Performance (2021) + Performance video (2022)
We write letters, take pictures, and exchange gifts to connect time breaks, farewells, and dear times.
As a project to commemorate the opening of the Hachinohe Art Museum which opened in the fall of 2021, which were created with14 Hachinohe citizens who are not usually involved in the stage; such as elementary school students, high school students, dance teachers, craftsmen, and fish market staff.
A small sweet work called -gift- was born that loves oneself, the other person, the time, and the place where it is placed.
