The dance company [MWMW] led by dancer/choreographer Moto Takahashi will hold the omnibus project ‘MWMW NEVER DIES vol.2’ . The venue will be MURASAKI PENGUIN PROJECT TOTSUKA, a newly opened performing and multimedia arts space in Totsuka Ward, Yokohama. It will be a project that confronts the possibilities of dance head-on attempting experimentation and deconstruction. At this event MWMW will present a new work to be created at the Kinosaki International Arts Center in November. For others, we will have [Murasaki Penguin], a group led by dancer/choreographer Anna Kuroda and sound/multimedia artist David Kirkpatrick, Yuuki Kamimura and Kae Kubo's contemporary dance company [Vonnos], and works selected  from a public application process.
