Marmont is the word made up from the words “earth” and “mole” in the Estonian language. Inspired by the five senses and habits of animals and bugs, this piece is choreographed by Kaori Seki to stimulate the senses of the audience, including the sense of smell by using an aroma. Premiered in 2010, the piece (short version) won the Next Generation Choreography Award at Toyota Choreography Award 2012. It was also shown at the Contemporary Dance Showcase: Japan + East Asia in New York in January 2015. This time the full version of it will be presented at TPAM.
