AΦE is an Ashford-based dance company founded in 2013 by Aoi Nakamura and Esteban Fourmi. With the vision to bring the art of dance closer to audiences, our mission is to create high-quality productions and experiences that are not bound by a stage.
Driven by the power of body and movement in space, our productions are environments that allow the audience to enjoy total immersion. Each element in the performance space – the set, performers, audience, sound, objects – is part of an echoing system, carefully constructed to allow audience’s own reflection on the subject explored.
We choreographed, directed and performed for award-winning works, such as Sean Rogg’s immersive experience The Waldorf Project, stage productions (Wound, Für Eli), 360 films (The Night Opera, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg video for Google Arts & Culture) and short films (Kai, Bysju promo, Chasing Mirror by Padre ft Jova music video).
WHIST, a physical theatre and virtual reality production, is our first major commission that premiered in April 2017.
