Introduction by Teet Kask.
Across Europe and Japan, this film covers over three decades of Shiro Takatani’s artistic journey, through his installations, and theatre and dance performances. Takatani and his collaborators (including the composer Ryuichi Sakamoto) explain the driving principles behind his work, where nature and people are observed through modern tools. Takatani uses technology to improve our understanding of our environment: enhancing infinitely small organisms, showing large-scale galaxies, and creating interactions between performers and dancers with cameras and large screens. Carefully selected performances and installations – remarkably filmed – demonstrate the evolution of his work.
