Two site-specific dance pieces combine for an innovative performance experience.
Ayako Kato presents What Is Movement?, a dance-based inquiry into movement and stillness. The project proposes a perpetual question and exhibits the states of unity and eternity residing in our ephemeral being. The work fosters perception of that which emerges between the body and the environment through the interplay of dynamics. The experiments of What is Movement? help viewers to rediscover the beauty and dignity of life in motion and recognize the intangible.
Ayako Kato last presented in the 2014 Pivot Arts Festival when her work received Ten Best Dance performances of the year by the Chicago Tribune.
Synapse Arts presents soften every edge, which weaves together textiles, dance, and handheld lighting in kinetic harmony. Six women knit with their arms, creating satin walls that swallow the space in a site-specific performance that features a score of piano and cello.
