Dancer and choreographer Yuuki Aoki, who founded the group ten years ago, says he was intrigued by the weather-battered bodies of the homeless men, and the kind of artistic expression they might produce.

People initially warned Aoki his project would fail if it were known the dancers were homeless, but the group now performs everywhere across Japan, from parks to museums.

Aoki and two troupe members travelled to Rio de Janeiro to perform with homeless people before the 2016 summer Olympics.

Their dances are not choreographed. Aoki said he stopped trying to teach specific moves to avoid restricting the men's self-expression.

Instead, he gives each a string of expressions - such as "swallowing the sun" or "exposing the meat to the wind" - to serve as a guide.

Despite being new to dance, Aoki said, the performers seek to use it to uncover what lies at the root of human expression, and think in new ways of what it means to be human.

The "H" in the name stands for human, hope and homeless.

Sokerissa has become a way of life for some.

Masayoshi Koiso, 69, said he had spent his life running away from family and work.

"I started thinking that maybe the only place left for me to run away to is death," Koiso, who has been homeless for nine years, recalls thinking around the time he joined up five years ago.

"If that's the case, I wanted to fully use up the body I have until then - then maybe, I'll have a good end."

Masato Yokouchi, who has been dancing for nine years, said the group sustains him.

"I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have Sokerissa."
