Sukebeningen presents performances for the senses, based on the erotic novels by Junichiro Tanizaki.
On the 20th of March, 2011, there were 80 people visiting... totally packed at STEIM Amsterdam.
piece 1: MOON 月
It's a performance in the total darkness. (Therefore no photos...) You would feel the existence of the dancer with smell, sound, and wiff. I have composed a scent of "white flower that blooms at night for attracting moths". The scent was impregnated on a special fan that was used by the dancer.
piece 2: Shiju hatte 四十八手
"Shijuhatte" is the Japanese version of "Kama Sutra". I've composed a scent of cherry blossoms. It was impregnated in the confetti and the dancer's kimono.
pice 3: The Tattooer (刺青)
The eros and the death are on one track.
The scent of eros: Jinko
The scent of the death: Shoko
