After the two major productions IN MY ROOM (2017) - awarded the Stuttgart Dance and Theater Prize - and A HOUSE (2018), the Japanese dancer and choreographer Emi Miyoshi, who lives in Freiburg, returns to Minimalform with DEPTH OF FIELD. Following on from her first solo work SINKING FLOAT (2003), the dancer rediscovers her own roots in her current piece and creates a choreographic tableau of Far Eastern and Western aesthetics. The focus is on the eternal cycle of life, the constant upward and downward movement with which all living things progress.

"Depth of Field" in photography refers to the depth of focus, the area within which an object is sharply imaged. Light and shadow are of central importance here. By fading in and out of the audience's eyes, Emi Miyoshi turns her attention to herself, individual parts of the body or the stage installation, inviting viewers to discover their innermost self.

After 15 years, Emi Miyoshi dares to make a remake of her debut work SINKING FLOAT, motivated by new insights into her own cultural identity and the experiences of the interplay between the arts in her interdisciplinary dance work.
