Hakanaï is a 45-minute interactive solo that becomes an installation and allows the audience to experience the interactive visuals for 80 minutes. Hakanaï has been performed all around the world and has gained worldwide recognition since its debut in 2013. Hakanaï is a Japanese word defining the ephemeral and the fragile. It is the union of two characters, one meaning “man” and the other “dream”. Starting from these premises, the French company AM/CB created a unique interactive choreographic solo performance called Hakanaï that offers a dreamlike environment where a single dancer moves within a cube, interacting with the images projected on its walls, tracing arcing parabolas and sine waves with hands, arms, and feet. Among the artistic and technological stakes, the attention is focused on the human being and their body through the use of interactive technology in the service of a timeless poetry.
