  • In Threshold, we are invited to experience the world of Tomomi Morimoto as she blends her vision of contemporary dance with elements inspired by two powerful physical traditions, butoh (Japanese performance art) and wushu (Chinese martial art). Accompanied by renowned musician Komodo, the performers test the limits of their world and allow us to look past the threshold and witness their most primitive and private selves. Passionate, primal and highly physical, Threshold exposes the raw human energy that is at the root of all things, and the potential it has to bind us.</þ>

    This 50-minute piece premiered at the MAI in March 2011. In 2012, a 35-minute version (without the martial arts performer) was presented at the festival Vue sur la rèleve in Montreal, and at the festival FIAAEQ in Mexico. (Two versions available: 35 mins and 50 mins)
