Chihiro Tazuro (1989, Japan) is a Multidisciplinary Artist currently based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Throughout her formative years, she studied rhythmic gymnastics and later on, in college, contemporary dance. At that time, using her body and mind in their synergistic entirety as the instrument and as the liaison, between inspiration and expression, physical utterances and mental postures; she choreographed several dance pieces which heightened her desire for artistic expression.

By stepping away from how she is domesticated to interpret the life around her, she reshapes, or rather devoids it of any shape, dilates her perspective of the world and strengthens her awareness and connection to its facets.
