The Sea of Noises by Chisato Minamimura, a deaf dance artist residing in England was performed at Owl Spot Theatre in Tokyo from 15th to 18th December 2016.

What differs, or remains the same, among the music Ms Minamimura and a hearing audience feels?
Sound/ Music coming out of diverse bodies will be put into a vivid creation through dance movements and digital presentation by Rhizomatiks Research.
Deaf or not, we are about to take a journey together using a new perspective as a tool to explore “the sound” and “the world felt through different senses.”
