About - MASUMI SAITO
Choreographer / Performer
Masumi Saito is a movement artist trained in contemporary dance. Born in rural Japan, and dancing from the age of 3, she moved to the UK in 2005. With training in many diverse dance forms, she started her solo performances shortly after graduating from London Contemporary Dance School and has carved a unique path owing to her expressionistic and cathartic dance style. She has devised performance for stage, film and photographic projects, presenting work on a number of alternative and internationally acclaimed platforms.
Masumi’s recent film projects have been shown internationally at the: International Video Dance Festival of Burgundy (France), Agite y Sirva Video Dance Festival (Mexico), International Screendance Festival at the American Dance Festival, SEDA – Semana del Audiovisual (Argentina), Numéridanse.TV – Maison de la Danse Lyon (France), Now&After13′ International Video Art Festival (Russia).
