    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.

    Sayaka Yamamoto

    I’ve worked with SHE’S musically in the past, and I’m so excited to work with them again like this. It will also be the first time for me to perform against an entire band alone, so I’m also super nervous. I’ll do my best to put on a great show!

     

    SHE’S
    After arranging and producing the song oasis for Yamamoto, she invited us to see her solo concert. I remember getting goosebumps because she had evolved so much, and she was so incredibly cool. I can’t wait to see what kind of live show this will turn out to be, and I hope we can sing something together!
