Opacity of Performance_TakahiroYamamoto

Compiled and edited in 2021, the book Opacity of Performance is many things: a container for a collection of image and text; an expansion of the initial inspirations and conceptual framework behind the choreography to come; an object that brings some of these ideas to a tangible state; a shared effort of thought and reflection to revisit, separate from and in tandem with the installation of the same name.
