With support from The Creators Project, and collaborating with Perfume choreographer MIKIKO, Director Daito Manabe and Visual Artist Takcom created a dynamic virtual environment to serve as the backdrop for two dancers whose movements across the stage are amplified by the graphics behind them, making each action feel larger and more emotive.
