The dance company of award-winning Japanese choreographer and dancer Ruri Mito will present the Czech premiere of its delicate dance performance entitled Sumika. The Ruri Mito Dance Company will appear here as part of its European tour.

“Sumika” (dwelling in Japanese) is abstract poetry evolved from bodies continuously changing in form and quality. Bodies elaborately and sensitively tangle and untangle. Mito carefully choreographs every part of each body to create this delicate yet strong piece. Sensitivity of body, preciseness of movement, breathing, and sensation in the skin are important components in her work.

Ruri Mito was born in Tokyo in 1982. She started studying dance at 5 years old at The Modern Ballet Institute, Tokyo. She graduated from the Japan Women's College of Physical Education, Department of Movement Science Dance Studies Major MA (2000–2004). She is now actively performing in many countries and has won many prizes. She has also worked with choreographers such as Damien Jalet, Sasha Waltz, Wim Vandekeybus and so on. In 2017, she received Tatsumi Hijikata Memorial Award. She is Junior Fellow of the Saison Foundation (2018–2019).
