“Combining elements of dance, performance art, music, technology, light, music and more, the versatile Japanese troupe enra has stumbled upon magic.” – The Huffington Post

Formed in 2012 by the esteemed Japanese artistic director Nobuyuki Hanabusa, enra is a Tokyo-based performance and production company that seeks to create the ultimate union between motion graphics and live performance. enra is a performance company that blends modern dance with original animated computer graphics, combining genres between real and virtual worlds into a unique show that has captivated audiences worldwide.

The key to enra’s artistry is the fusion of interactive digital technology with performance art. Blending the skills of dancers with backgrounds in martial arts, gymnastics, ballet, animation dance, juggling and street dance with projected digital art, enra creates fresh stories that explore space, time, and gravity.

The universality of their stories, the engagement and interactivity across generations and cultures, make an enra live performance a compelling experience, creating instant emotional connections with the audience. enra performances can be tailored to suit the audience and locations, from solo to ensemble performances, through to a custom story like their commissioned closing act for the Cannes Film Festival 2015.
