Makoto Matsushima  (The Instructor)

To the audience of Hong Kong, Makoto Matsushima is not an entirely unfamiliar name. Makoto has performed many times in Hong Kong and his performance is many-faceted and full of energy. Makoto Matsushima is a graduate of the Nihon University College of Art. He launched his stage career with the Japanese dance theatre company Pappa TARAHUMARA while he was still a student, and has won critical acclaim for his performances both in television and on stage. From1995, Matsushima began creating his own pieces, working both as choreographer and dancer. In 1997, he performed in Zuni Icosahedron’s production Invisible Cities. He has toured Aia, Europe, and the U.S. with Pappa TARAHUMARA, and participated in its Hong Kong production of Spring Day (Haruhiru) in 1998. The following year, he choreographed and performed in Thunder and Lightning, a production by Edward Lam Dance Theatre, for the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Matsushima has been the artist-in-residence at Zuni Icosahedron, and collaborated with many Hong Kong’s local artists in addition to giving solo performances of his works. He is also active in the areas of set design and fine-art works. He was Professor at Korea National University of Arts in 2008 and later in 2010.

Makoto will appear in Theatre Horizon's latest production of the trilogy, ‘Century-old Dreams of a Fishing Harbour Episode II Nightmares’ as guest performer.
