Japanese supergroup enra defies conventions of space, time, gravity, and physics through the seamless synchronization of digital projection and physical movement. Using vibrant swatches of primary colors, Tetris-like geometry in multiple dimensions, and contrasts between human silhouette and digital art, the group's performances are futuristic and otherworldly.
In the group's work, performers seem to jump off of rooftops, swim through underwater temples, destroy asteroidal objects, and harness the power of starlight. The members of enra include specialists in martial arts, rhythmic gymnastics, popping, classical ballet, diabolo juggling, and street dance. With contextual references to Japanese pop culture, cinema, video games, and even astrology, enra captures the postmodern and eclectic spirit of sprawling, contemporary Tokyo.
Enra achieved viral video success in the United States after its performance for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic bid was picked up online. Since that time, the group has performed in 26 different countries on six continents to overwhelming acclaim.
