By intricately designing the strength, the brightness, the speed and the refracting angle of lights, Umeda skillfully shifts the visual recognition of the audiences. In Accumulated Layout piece, the texture of dance movement changes in accordance with the layout of lights that shifts slightly from one temporal segment to the other. In one section, a violent oscillation of arms gain velocity in the serenely fading light; or, the kinetic movement of the dancer's body mechanically halts when suddenly exposed to a radiant light. 'The light and the move go hand in hand to compose various stimulation patterns,' says Umeda. With passage of time, these stimulation patterns gradually accumulate within the audiences' bodies: infusing in them ineffaceable residual images.

Biology, technology and human creativity are Hiroaki Umeda’s allies in MEDIAN, which sets out to make the flesh dance like matter in motion, in fusion with other matters. The entire spectacle – dance, video and sound – is created out of microscopic structures inconceivable to the human brain.

Hiroaki Umeda, a Japanese prodigy with hip-hop roots, has not ceased to mix dance with graphic, visual and interactive creation, in about fifteen creations from solo works to a commission by the Ballet of Gothenburg Opera in Sweden.
