The tour will be continued in Sibiu, where two performances will take place, The Match Seller’s Tale and passacaglia, on April 5 and 6, as a preview of the International Theatre Festival (FITS 2017).
Noism was established in 2004 by the artist Jo Kanamori, as the first professional dance company following the European theatrical tradition. Jo Kanamori, Artistic Director of Noism, has studied under Maurice Bejart at L’ecole-Atelier Rudra Bejart School in Lausanne. He performed as a member of the Netherlands Dance Theatre, the Lyon National Opera Ballet in France and the Gothenburg Ballet in Sweden. Kanamori returned to Japan in 2002. His first self-produced project, „no-mad-ic project – 7 fragments in memory” was honoured with the Third Asahi Performing Arts Awards in 2003. Kanamori directed Bartok’s opera works, Bluebeard’s Castle and The Miraculous Mandarin. He has been presented numerous awards and in 2008 was the recipient of the prestigious Minister of Education, Culture, Sport, Science and Technology Award in Japan.
