Mina Nishimura and Kota Yamazaki
July 14 @ 6:00 pm
Tokyo-born dance artist Mina Nishimura will perform excerpts from her new work, Mapping a Forest while Searching for an Opposite Term of Exorcist, and I, Ghost, the Other (self), or You, a work in progress created with the Bessie Award-winning Japanese dance theater artist Kota Yamazaki, who says, “I believe that people are fluid and should flow like water so that exchange between those from different backgrounds can become easier and freer.”
In her new work, Nishimura re-imagines a way of organizing a body and a space where multiple energies, traits, memories, and identities are bubbling up and disappearing. Dance Magazine calls her “a darling of the experimental dance scene.”

Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
