Her art triggers sensibility and the poetic sensation of the spectators. In its form, the dance underlines that seeking for easy answers is not enough - and so the topics she deals with are always coined by a critical, socially and politically questioning position.
Aiko Kazuko Kurosaki was born in Tokio, Japan and lives in Vienna today. In her pieces, she works with the immediacy of the body - the construction of virtual images, the implication of space and light approximate her dance to fine arts. The biographical fusion of an eastern and European background of experiences can also be seen in her work, which is formed by Japanese Butoh as well as by western, contemporary dance styles.
