"Dialogue" which crossing the boundaries will always generate new energy and trigger development. We will further understand each other, know where the boundaries are, and how we can handle it.

"He and I" is a performing arts project, involving three artists with different background, a Hong Kong artist Andy Ng who is a multi-discipline theater worker, Noh actor Hikaru Uzawa and Butoh dancer Kanya Takeda from Tokyo. It would be an in-depth "Dialogue" and "Collaboration" between contemporary theatre artist and traditional theatre artist.

The theater group "ABSOLUTE" was founded by Tomoco Kawaguchi (Theatre Director/Tokyo) and Cheuk Cheung (Film Director/Hong Kong) in 2013. They initiated the long-term project "Absolute Airplane" which is not only a theatre production, furthermore, it is about setting up a cross-cultural exchange network, in stimulating creativity and idea exchange between young artists of the involved cities in Asia. Almost 30 cross-cultural and cross-discipline artists, including contemporary and traditional artists joined their creative workshops and collaborations.
