Together with classical Indian dancer Indu Panday and visual artist Cocky Eek, Japanese choreographer Kenzo Kusuda welcomes you to step into an enchanting and mystical world beyond imagination. Sometimes barely visible; the most subtle breath of life can cause a tidal wave that is at times nourishing and at other times overpowering, leaving undeniable traces that transform the way we look at things. Braille is an intimate and magical love affair that leaves no one untouched and unaffected.
