Erika Mitsuhashi

Dancer and emerging choreographer Erika Mitsuhashi has interpreted the works of many of the world’s greatest performers and choreographers. The Simon Fraser University BFA dance program graduate studied in New York and has performed at local and international festivals. Erika premiers the solo work this room has curved edges at the Powell Street Festival. Drawing aesthetic inspiration from cinematic master Wong Kar-wai, this room has curved edges interlaces the secretive, changing, architecture of dreams with lived personal experience.

Project: this room has curved edges

this room has curved edges is a solo work created and performed by Erika Mitsuhashi. Enmeshed in memories of rooms both real and imagined, this room has curved edges interlaces the secretive, changing, architecture of dreams with lived personal experience. Drawing aesthetic inspiration from cinematic master Wong Kar-wai, the shifting movement score draws the audience into the dreamscape and imagination of an individual. With the body as a conduit into the psychological realm, the piece experiments with dream-like sensibilities of time, logic and space. More info ›
