Minori Sumiyoshiyama is a Japanese artist, dancer, actor and researcher. Her works focus on the relationship between space and body. She also creates relationships with audiences with tools of her own making, such as dancing with balloons which include the breath of audiences, or playing a Japanese traditional card game together with the audiences. Sometimes she collaborates with musicians or architects. Since 2017, she has been active in various parts of Asia, through conducting an ongoing project entitled “Hitsudankai - From now/here, Silence”, a body of work which creates dialogues by writing communication on a piece of paper in a completely silent situation. In 2019, she co-founded the art collective Orangcosong with her collaborator Chikara Fujiwara, and joined a touring project “Engeki Quest”, and a table performance “IsLand Bar”. Since 2020, she has launched an online international collaboration project entitled "2x2 WindowS" with a Vietnamese multimedia composer Tam Thi Pham.
