Danny Choo

If you've lived in Tokyo long enough -- or spent time wading through the oceans of YouTube videos -- there's a good chance you've spotted Danny Choo roaming the streets. You may not recognize him by face though, and that's because when you have seen him he was in full Stormtrooper uniform. More than just a servant of the Empire, Danny has used the success gained from his costume outings -- resulting in not only YouTube fame, but international media coverage as well -- to help power his own web portal, which brings in over 2 million unique visitors a month, all eager to follow Danny's adventures in Japan, as well as his coverage of topics near and dear to the hearts of the otaku worldwide. Danny presented at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 60 -- and yes, he was in full costume.

PKN Gothenburg Hits 20

PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg is about to celebrate its 20th edition -- certainly a number we love to commemorate here at PK central -- and there is plenty planned for the event, set to happen on June 6. From organizer Jesper Larsson: Our theme for the night is "Alternative National Day Celebrations" since it's held on our actual national day that no Swede really knows how to celebrate. The solution: PechaKucha of course! A chance for new and old Swedes to meet and present each other. Lots of things happening that day/night... on the afternoon we have a meeting between PechaKucha organizers from Gothenburg, Olso and Copenhagen in order to discuss a triangular exchange program! Then we have invited all the previous PechaKucha Night Gothenburg presenters (>200) as guest of honors for a drink... Then it's PKN presentation time with legendary "progg" rock / theatre group Nationalteatern, PK Mahanandia who fled from India to Sweden on a bike (!), and also the return of graffiti artist Carolina Falkholt who presented at the very first PKN in Gothenburg! Here's a bit more info on the night's festivities: Sunday 6th of June Pecha Kucha GBG Vol #20 + anniversary party! On June 6th we're arranging the 20:th edition of Pecha Kucha in Göteborg!! And since the number 20 is holy in this context, we're also arranging an anniversary party and reunion besides the presentations. So bring your dance shoes, an open mind and count on staying a bit longer than usual!! After all, it's our National Day and it needs to be celebrated somehow. Speakers: Note that the list may change * Nationalteatern – Legends * Niklas Madsen – Designer * Carolina Falkholt – Grafitta * Jesper Östlund – Biologist and photographer * Linda Spåman – Perverted croquis * PK Mahanandia – Indian life story * Ted Hesselbom – Röhsska Design Museum * Scott Blixen – Post Punk/Music Art Bonus acts & djs Note that the list may change * DJ Naomi Paradise – dj * Dan Henriksson – interior installation * Club Perverted Croquis - Visuals, live acts and a copy machine by Frida Sjöstam, Nicklas Hultman, Linda Spåman & Jeanette M Rodell * Carolina Falkholt Live: Electro + cello * Jens Thoms Ivarsson – promised to dance on the bar * Daniel Rehn – dance / party tent / dj Location: Park Lane Time: 19.30 until late Entrance: Free as always!

Moment Factory

We kick off the week with a "Presentation of the Day" that was recorded in Frankfurt about a studio in Montreal. 75 multimedia artists work at Moment Factory. Although the studio is based in Montreal, Canada, the team is composed of people from around the world and from various backgrounds, including dance, architecture, lighting design, programming, engineering, graphic design, illustration, music, production and more. What Gabriel Pontbriand loves so much about his job is that each project is a surprising adventure. Having and international and multidisciplinary group of people working together allows them to imagine interactions between technology and emotion that are unique each time.
