AΦE is a touring company that creates performances not bound by the stage. Inspired by a world transformed by new technologies, artistic directors Aoi Nakamura and Esteban Fourmi choreograph bold and unusual audience journeys.
Our audiences are active participants within visually captivating environments. Our fascination is body in the space and possibility that technology offer for us to extend our imagination and communication with the audience. We create work that harness different art forms and technology not bound by presentation format.
