09/16/2016 - 10/13/2016
Takao Kawaguchi, one of Japan's most sought-after dancers and former member of Dumb Type, challenged himself to literally "copy" the dances of the late butoh master and co-founder Kazuo Ohno, from archival recordings. What results is a hauntingly beautiful illusory duet between Kawaguchi and Ohno. Presented just weeks before what would have been Ohno's 110th birthday, About Kazuo Ohno attempts to reconstruct Ohno's timeless masterpieces, including Admiring La Argentina (1977) and My Mother (1981), phrase by phrase. This tour is supported by the Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program.

A 12-foot video projection of a waterfall by the Japanese interdisciplinary technology group, teamLab, will be on display at the Dayton Art Institute as part of the summer suite of exhibitions. Informed by the tradition of ancient Japanese Art, ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and contemporary forms of anime, the work demonstrates teamLab’s keen interest in the transcendental qualities of water and the combination of both two and three-dimensional space in digital form. This exhibition is supported by JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
