NII Yumiko

Born in Hiroshima . She is interested in paintings and songs since she was small . She studies sculpture at the college. Her works have a lot of eyes and noses in colorful styrene foam linked together. Since 1987, she started to her career as a vocalist . She was fascinated with improvisation . Her music filled with a glossy voice and a marvellous sense of time. Since 1993, she started to work with her own body, such as modern dance, butoh, shintaido(moving meditation) and yoga . In 1998 founded 'Hana-arashi' -Pop Butoh dance group by three women-in Kyoto. Since 2006, she participated by a solo dance in Performance Art Festival in Korea, Australia and Finland. She aims to receive the space as it is, carve this moment that is appeared with radiance of being born, power of gaze and power of feel . She weights the heaviness and lightness of pieces fallen off from the world, and stamps the moment with the images those pieces create in feverish dance.
