Riuchi creates performance of Asian inspiration told through dance, circus and magic.
- General info
- The character RIUCHI – warrior and alchemist at once – comes from the imagination of the performer’s Asian identity. The artist grew up nourished by Japanese animation, dreaming of jumping high while launching fireballs at imaginary assailants. From those fictional adventures of struggle and triumph a tale was born and Riuchi emerged from a mystical Eastern land. Riuchi communicates through movements that are based on the theories of martial arts through self-taught techniques and training. Within this context, he creates movements enriched with grace, purity and focus that seem effortless. Riuchi has received several bursaries for the development of a new show and became one of the winners of Ireland’s “New Emerging Artists” for 2016.
