Ikko Taniuchi (Osaka) is a remarkable performance artist: exploring the nexus of sound, movement and visual spectacle, he confronts audiences with a rich feast of deconstructed Butoh and action painting, investing the performance with both visceral intensity and wry humor. For his performance at the MIUC, he will be collaborating with 2 masters of fractured, post-breakcore, electro-improv mayhem, Yuka Mikayama and John Harte, most famously associated with legendary group, Pig and Machine. And, to kick proceedings off, 2 of Melbourne's most sublime soloists in a premiere duo of acoustic sonorities teetering on the edge of feedback chaos.
- Gearoid Brinn (guitar) and Chris Young (bass clarinet)
- Ikko Taniuchi (OSAKA) (extreme butoh), Yuka Mikayama (vocals and drummachine) and John Harte (guitar)
