Calendar & Events
- KOOL—Dancing in My MindFriday, April 17 @ 7:30 pm
Robert Wilson, working with Carla Blank, creates a performance-portrait inspired by Suzushi Hanayagi, legendary Japanese performer and choreographer of classical dance. Wilson started working with Hanayagi in his 1984 production of The Knee Plays, which was partially developed in Japan. In 2008 he sought her out in an Osaka home for the elderly where she has been living for years in a state of dementia. Archival and newly filmed material of Hanayagi by Richard Rutkowski is combined with recreation of performance material and newly choreographed dances performed by Jonah Bokaer and Illenk Gentille and others. The work reflects Hanayagi’s current state and serves as a poetic monument to a working friendship. KOOL—Dancing in My Mind is co-produced and co-commissioned by Works & Process; Guild Hall, East Hampton; and the Byrd Hoffman Watermill Foundation with support from the Jerome Robbins Foundation. Please note there is no reception following this performance.
