Politics meets Clown meets Dance in this new piece titled KNOW the RULES, WIN the GAME. Kunji Ikeda draws on the sordid history of the Taikomochi – the Japanese clown – to engage with physical and logical boundaries. The clown seeks to embody truth until arriving at a systemic problem that needs to be explored; the dancer seeks physical virtuosity within a set structure of choreographic choices. Together these forms feed one another in fearless play around our political and artistic landscapes.
