Sumika is moving! On the 2nd and 3rd of March, the DOX Centre was scheduled to be dominated by the precision choreography of Japanese choreographer Ruri Mito. Her company was set to perform the Czech premiere of the delicate dance production Sumika. Due to current circumstances and measures, however, Ruri Mito has once again been forced to postpone her entire European tour. But there will be Sumika nevertheless, on the 22nd and 23rd of March, 2023! It will take some time, but it will be worth it. We can promise you that. We have already informed ticket holders by email. We send many greetings from Ruri Mito and thank you for your goodwill!

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).

#Datamaze: Hybrid Condition

Digital and algorithmic technologies have become a mundane, yet also nearly invisible part of our everyday existence.

Temple Builders

In the exhibition Temple Builders, the Peerless Cooperative of the Holy Nurture (JSD) will present the mainly cult and ritual side of its activities. Mister Miláček, the Young Saint, the cause and reason for the JSD, chaotic of the universe, has not only united the ununitable in unlimited syncretism, but also created countless new churches and religions.


Lost in...

The exhibition will present a cross-section of Vladimír Doležal's work. His painting and drawing work is combined with his experience as a restorer. A deep understanding of the meaning of the figurative image, i.e. the representation of archetypal phenomena of human existence, is decisive for Doležal's art.
