WHEN PILLARS EVAPORATE
When Pillars Evaporate
confronts us with the question: ‘have you ever wished to disappear?’ It draws inspiration from a phenomenon called johatsu - the "evaporating people" of Japan - exploring voluntary disappearance in contemporary societies and the effects of socio-political structures on identity and space.
We are unpacking the inherent choreographic qualities of socio-political systems, building bridges between performance, anthropology and social sciences, and evolving a way of expressing the nuanced experience of disappearance in the UK and beyond.
