Members of Keiko Takeya’s Dance 01 company rehearse for “Psyche,” to be presented in collaboration with Italy-based Iranian artist Hossein Golba. “Psyche” (meaning “breath, life and soul” in Greek) will employ the language of dance to evoke the fluid, metaphysical world of the intellect, says Golba. The artist symbolizes religious concepts in his stage design, in which a large cube (resembling the Kaaba of Mecca) shares the stage with a 5-meter-wide gate suggestive of a Japanese shrine gate, and a bundle of white cloth in a cart, symbolizing the body of Christ.

“Psyche” runs from Oct. 30-Nov. 1 at Kitazawa Town Hall, a five-minute walk from the South Exit of Shimo-Kitazawa Station on the Keio Inokashira and Odakyu lines. Performances begin at 7 p.m. For more information, call (03) 5936-2882, fax (03) 5932-9132 or e-mail dance01@msi.biglobe.ne.jp
