Choreographer and ex-Dumb Type member Takao Kawaguchi performs his much-acclaimed solo work Good Luck.

Slow, continuous movement unfolds as though it were a filmic scene played at one tenth of its original speed, but beneath this dance emerges a curious, compelling narrative. Accompanying the stretched out bodies, stories and emotions is a highly immersive and sensorial soundscape by David Vranken, featuring Tokyocentric field-recordings ranging from a shrine, subway stations, and game centres to streets, forests and a beach.

Part of the Dancehouse Japan Focus alongside Matou and Pollen Revolution.
