JAPANESE SUPERGROUP [enra] FUSES MOVEMENT & TECH IN PERFORMANCE OF ‘DREAMS’

Posted by Japaneseartsnetwork@gmail.com

Japanese performing arts collective [enra]—the YouTube and viral video sensation—shares their magical fusion of movement and technology in a Denver/Boulder debut performance. Using vibrant colors, Tetris-like geometry and contrasts between human silhouette and digital art, [enra] is futuristic and otherworldly. Members incorporate martial arts, rhythmic gymnastics, popping, classical ballet, diabolo juggling and street dance. Best known in the U.S. for its viral video success (with over 10 million views on YouTube), [enra] has performed around the world and on America's Got Talent. [enra] captures the postmodern and eclectic spirit of contemporary Tokyo through references to cinema, video games, Japanese pop culture and astrology—creating work that is fresh and universal for audiences of all ages.

"Combining elements of dance, performance art, music, technology, light, music and more, the versatile Japanese troupe ‘enra’ has stumbled upon magic." —Huffington Post
