This is to be seen and heard: bedazzlement will be guaranteed when performance artist and musician Akemi Takeya will once again draw on her passion for both precisely composed as well as wildly imaginative scores, thereby creating new images of body and sound – a kaleidoscopic range of expressions.

Tapped/Untapped is a re(mix) of the history of western and eastern art and sounds. Akemi Takeya will “tap” the Shamisen (a traditional Japanese instrument), play the piano and sing a song in what will be a voice & body act. Let’s be curious to see what new and potentially provoking contextures of body and sound will emerge.
