TODAYSART 2009 - Hiroaki Umeda

Hiroaki Umeda is a pluridisciplinary artist: choreographer, dancer, sound, image and lighting designer with roots in hip-hop, classical dance and photography. He was born in 1977 and currently lives and works in Tokyo. In 2000 Hiroaki Umeda founded his own company S20 and since he has started making own pieces. His work is minimal and radical, subtle and violent, and is created to be 'experienced'. He is now recognized more as a visual artist rather than a choreographer, a mover rather than a dancer. By using projections, Umeda becomes one with his environment, controlling sound and light with his movements.


Every year, for one weekend, TODAYSART festival brings a whole range of innovative and groundbreaking acts to the Netherlands. For two days, the city centre of The Hague functions as one big festival terrain, with performances both in the public domain and on several indoor stages. Interactive installations, projections and acts use the city centre as a stage and transform The Hague into an inspiring stronghold of audiovisual experiences.
