    Message from the Artists

    Hello. 

    For this event, we’ve created an everyday space, ‘home,’ in a very not-everyday space: ArtRink in Yokohama.

    Guests should come on an adventure that begins at the front door, then dance on ice through the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and more!

    You might discover something new among the familiar furnishings and snippets of daily life.

    We hope that once you leave ArtRink and return home, you’ll try to keep dancing from time to time.

    Just have fun. Dance with us!

    Whether you’re wearing skates, sneakers, or slippers…

    Just take a step and have the best possible time this winter.
