Tabaimo & Maki Morishita: Fruits borne out of rust

Tabaimo & Maki Morishita: Fruits borne out of rust

JAPAN

"A fantastic world full of activity that challenges our understanding of reality.” —Hammer Museum about Tabaimo, Hammer Projects: Tabaimo

U.S. Premiere

Presented as part of The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

Conceived and directed by internationally known Japanese visual artist Tabaimo, Fruits borne out of rust uses drawings, video installations, and live music to probe the themes that lurk beneath daily existence. Her intricate animations transform the stage into a wood floor apartment, a large birdcage that traps the dancer with a dove, and a line of tatami mats that swallow the dancer whole. Tabaimo’s collaborator, award-winning choreographer Maki Morishita, mischievously blends the subtle movements of the dancer’s fingers and toes with the dynamic drive of her limbs and torso, enhancing Tabaimo’s peculiar and introspective world.

The North American tour of Fruits borne out of rust is produced and organized by Japan Society, New York, NY, and supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan through the Japan Arts Council, and The Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program.

Special thanks to NEC Display Solutions, Ltd. Rehearsal space for this creation was provided by The Saison Foundation and Art Museum & Library, Ota.
