Solo Performance, by Ami Yamasaki

Event Slider

Using her own body as her main instrument, Ami Yamasaki emits refined sounds that evolve in the oscillation of their own limits. Her voice is used as a mechanism of interconnection, deeply influenced by intimate emotion and the perception of the immediate environment. The sounds reflect all kinds of invisible vibrations that surround us, inviting the audience into a fascinating relationship with the place.

This performance occurs after Conversations on Japan.

Ami Yamasaki uses her ears, vocal cords and skin to capture her voice and its echoes. Through her performances and installations, Ami Yamasaki questions the world and the human body and how it can expand through hearing. She was a member of the Asian Cultural Council and the Japan Foundation Asia Centre. She has exhibited and performed in various galleries, museums and festivals internationally and has received several awards for her work.
