This year's theme for KYOTOGRAPHIE is "SOURCE."
Each performing artist will travel around KYOTOGRAPHIE, picking up fragments of inspiration. The expression of photography will give birth to yet another new expression, linking together and expanding the source.

An experimental evening where you can witness secondary expressions.

Which artist's work was the inspiration?
We hope you will enjoy this event while imagining and having a drink.

    ©︎Yoriyas (Yassine Alaoui Ismaili)

    Moroccan photographer and choreographer. In 2013, while traveling the world as a professional break dancer, he gave up his career as a dancer due to a serious knee injury. This led him to master a new artistic approach to photography as a means of self-expression, and since 2015, he has been sublimating his physical expression into photography as well. He is internationally acclaimed and was recently named one of the artists to watch by The New York Times. From performance to photography, his work focuses on how people live and fit in cities and public spaces.

She mainly works in the Kansai region, performing store opening celebrations, anniversary celebrations, New Year's dedication activities, and collaborations with tea ceremonies.

Shinoda also performs alone in Japan and abroad. After visiting the Amazon region in Central and South America, she became interested in South American shamanism and medicinal herbs, and began studying medicinal cuisine.
