Saiko Kino at Spring Loaded


Date: 17 April 2009 – 18 April 2009 from 8.00pm
Venue: The Place, London 

Japanese dancer and choreographer, Saiko Kino will be performing as part of Spring Loaded, The Place’s annual season of new choreography.
Spring Loaded features thirty compelling new dance performances from UK based artists and Saiko Kino, appearing as part of a triple bill, will present a re-worked version of her highly regarded Place Prize commission, Ichi.
Saiko Kino studied dance in Japan and has created solos in collaboration with musicians and visual artists for theatre as well as for site-specific locations in Tokyo, Yokohama and Seoul.
She has been a dancer with Russell Maliphant Company since 2005.
Ichi is a reworked version of her Place Prize 2008 commission.
Ichi is based around the dual, oppositional aspects of light and darkness. Fantasy and a healthy dose of mystery are revealed in the guise of a kaidan (a Japanese ghost story).
Ichi is a commission from The Place Prize 2008, sponsored by Bloomberg
