About the Speakers

Hiroaki Umeda
Hiroaki Umeda is a choreographer, dancer and visual artist. Since 2002, his choreographic works have travelled to locations such as the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, with performances in over 150 cities in 40 countries. His works go beyond dance and choreography, encompassing sound, video and lighting design. His work is performed not only in the field of dance, but also in technology and electronic music platforms around the world such as MUTEK Montreal. In recent years, he has also created visual installations that focus on physical sensation. In 2018, his video installation was presented at the 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT's exhibition Audio Architecture. His installation Intentional Particle Dome Installation has also been presented in festivals around the world, and received awards at FullDome Festival in Germany and Macon Film Festival in the USA.

Justine Emard
Justine Emard is a visual artist based in Paris, France, whose practice revolves around video, installation, photography and augmented reality. Her visual displays explore the relationships between robotics, objects, artificial intelligence and life, based on deep learning experiences and human-machine dialogues. From 2015 to 2016, she was in residence at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris. In 2017, she was laureate of the residency Hors les murs of the Institut Français and Tokyo Wonder Site for her project Reborn in Japan. That same year, she participated in "Clouds ⇄ Forests", the 7th International Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, and Nuit Blanche Kyoto with the show Mitate & Imagination. In 2018, she performed Parade for the End of the World in collaboration with Jérémie Bélingard and Keiichiro Shibuya for the Yokohama Dance Collection 2018, co-produced by the Maison de la culture du Japon.

The Little Arts Academy
The Little Arts Academy (LAA) is managed by The RICE Company Limited and offers art programmes in music, dance, visual arts and theatre for children and youth aged 6 to 19. The academy emphasises the creation of original works, performance opportunities and development of personal and technical skills through the arts. In 2018, LAA introduced a new series of Tech+Arts modules for children to learn creative media and digital technologies so that young budding artists can integrate technology with the arts. LAA seeks to provide equal opportunities for all children to pursue the arts and is supported by The Business Times Budding Artists Fund. Since 2005, the Fund has supported more than 17,000 children and youths from financially-disadvantaged backgrounds.
