About the Event

Sand (a)isles

Sand (a)isles is a “fieldwork performance” that aims to find ways for people to gather and spend time together in the public spaces of a city. Through walking and repetition, Transfield Studio engages collaborators, audiences and participants to think about urban-scale planning, history, the environment and how we can be together in a place.

About the Artist

Transfield Studio (Rick Yamakawa and Yuko Takeda) (Artists-in-Residence)

Transfield Studio was founded in 2018 by architect Rick Yamakawa, performance maker JK Anicoche and performing arts manager Yuko Takeda. Based on urban research and grounded in fieldwork, they aim to create a “transfield” in their works by dissolving the boundaries that exist between various artistic fields and create opportunities for people to gather. The participatory nature of their works involves working together with collaborators and audiences to create new insights into thinking about our environments from a variety of perspectives. Their works have been presented at Toyooka Theater Festival 2020 Fringe and the 2018 and 2019 editions of Festival/Tokyo.
