English Writing

It is still difficult for me to write an English diary, let alone make an artistic statement.
I was making a concept sheet for EARTH MOVE this afternoon.
I think there are some grammatical mistake, which I would like corrected.
Your help on correcting errors will be very much appreciated.
Therefor I put it here.

A statement of EARTH MOVE (abstract)

An artists' collective, EARTH MOVE was founded in March 2003 by Tomohisa Hashimoto (artistic director.) Based in the Japanese city of Nagoya, we have been addressing emergent art projects beyond genre, generation and region. Organising artistic team for each project flexibly so that it enables us to do many extensive and creative works in varied ways, such as performance, exhibition, video, workshop, talk event and more, without being constrained by any forms or systems.

|||| Key Message / Vision
─Across Border

EARTH MOVE explores a range of new territory for interdisciplinary arts. Through projects, we intend to challenge integrate all art form such as theater, dance, music, film, fine arts and others, and thus contribute to progress and prosperity in art climate.

When you look down the ground from the sky, you won't see any border lines , it is not the same thing on a map as you know. The land is connected to everywhere from south to north. Likewise, all arts are inherently linked to each other, even though they are categorized. The name "EARTH MOVE" was chosen to promote cross-fertilization of ideas from colleagues in divers fields as if all type of expression becomes one earth which creates a big movement in collaboration.

|||| Mission

Living in the 21st century, the explosive expansion of the possibilities we acquired have enabled us to edit the information dramatically beyond time and geographic distances. Meanwhile, there has been a ambivalent phenomenon that progressed personalization or differentiation reduce your chances of getting unknown source. Likewise, the speciality of each field is getting complicated these days, although increasing number of the crossing realm trial,
there are not very many production which are mutually concerned with the creative process itself.

Even if it has a variety, it would not be creative if it is a divided community. We place emphasis on the enhanced interaction instead of efficiency and productivity, searching for a dialogue within the different art forms in order to open a window on others' technologies or philosophies. This is a sort of time-consuming research, but we take this way, whatever the destination. Because this is the roll of EARTH MOVE, making repeated experiments and discussions, we continue the aggressive attitude toward the integration.

Generation is also a border we strive to traverse. However the previous cultural movements have just occurred in one generation, given our time changing quality of society, we think it is necessary to consciously build a intergenerational ties. EARTH MOVE incorporate the latest intelligence, technology and thoughts into our projects as well as pioneer emerging contemporary works with all of the traditional advantages of skills and culture. Gained the participation and cooperation of all generations, we produces a work that speak to the heart or bring intellectual joy.

Artistic Director, Tomohisa Hashimoto
