As a busker Hayatonnu… focuses on creating harmony between dance and handbalancing.
After growing up in Japan, he has been living in Germany since 2012.
He reflects on two huge different cultural backgrounds in his lyrical story.
Hayatonnu… talks with his whole body with no words.

Eternal Longing (Plus)

‘Eternal Longing’ is a lyrical story about overcoming difficulties and loneliness.
Hayatonnu… combines dance and acrobatics routines to express the emotions that everyone knows.
What does it take to find happiness?

In his new piece ‘Eternal Longing Plus’, he added some scenes with more positive energy into the former version. He is especially longing for the moments to find peace of mind with you…

Duration: 25 – 50 minutes
Language: a show with no words
Technical requirements: a flat floor and area min 4.5 m x 4.5 m x (height)4 m.

Recommendation

Hayato is a hard-working person, respectful to the organisers, volunteers, other artists, and the audience. He performs at his best not only for big crowds, but he shows appreciation for every single person that comes to see his show. Last year he won everyone’s heart over when he performed in heavy rain for just a few people who he convinced to stay with both his art and attitude.

Hayato has everything an organiser looks for when selecting artists. He is not only a world-class dancer with a beautiful show, but he is also a lovable person with a great sense of humour that everyone wants to be around and call a friend.
