On March 20th, we had an opportunity to present our work “ONES” in Shizuoka, Japan at the Tsuchiya Ballet Work Studio 5th workshop.
Tsuchiya Ballet Work Studio is a Ballet school locates in Shizuoka, Japan, own by my mother, who was a Ballet dancer before. Every year, her school organizes a Ballet concert at Numazu City Cultural Hall, and this year, she invited us to present our work as part of their program.
We were very excited to present our work in this small town in Japan, where the contemporary art is not so well known.
Out of 300+ audiences, I got one very special feedback from my dearest grandfather, who is a drama teacher, a script writer, and a poet. Although he is not so familiar with contemporary art, especially an experimental film like this, he said
“This is a reflection of reality on today’s society in which people live in their own bubble. I can feel the loneliness from the film.”
It was very exciting for us to have this feedback. It tells us that our work communicated something special beyond words.
Art is powerful
