ELEMENTS was created by Yuki Hasegawa in collaboration with Azul’s dancers, and was premiered in February 2013 at Salvatore Capezio Theater in New York. In this work, Yuki and the dancers explore the relationship between humans and Four Elements (based on Eastern philosophy: Water, Wind, Soil, and Fire.)
"Yuki Hasegawa... has a clear vision of presenting works influenced by Japanese culture but which can also be vividly contemporary in feel."
