"Pandora" Choreographed by MANA KAWAMURA/KAWAMURA THE 3RD. "Pandora" is a site-specific piece inspired by the legendary myth, Pandora's Box. Utilizing the walls and columns of DNA’s theater, the piece is movement-based and incorporates a theatrical essence.

"Order made-6-" was originally two separate pieces called, "Order made" and "256", inspired by the lives of Tamura's grandparents. This new piece has been created by cutting out moments of their lives and reflecting on them. In this piece, two characters, a lady in a dress and a man in a suit, express significant moments in one couple’s lives such as birth, graduation, marriage, and funerals, which punctuate their lives with each flash. The characters are represented by various couples of dancers whose gender, race and age differ.

Performed by Jessica Herring, Michael Ingle, Asami Morita, Ryoji Sasamoto, Noriko Sugita and Makiko Tamura. Costumes by Makiko Tamura. Music composed and performed live by Chris Powers. Sound Design by Stephan Moore. Lighting Design by Amanda K. Ringger.

Sharaku-Interpreted by Contemporary Japanese Artists Woodblock Print Exhibit

02/04/2011 - 03/26/2011

(Albany, GA)

Beginning February 4, the Albany Museum of Art will host a major exhibition of contemporary Japanese art. The exhibition, titled "Sharaku - Interpreted by Contemporary Japanese Artists," includes reproductions of woodblock prints by 18th century Japanese printmaker, Toshusai Sharaku, as well as works paying homage to Sharaku by some of Japan's most notable contemporary artists and graphic designers, including Yasumasa Morimura, Takashi Murakami, and others.

Sharaku is the famous Edo-period ukiyo-e (woodblock print) artist who is known for his inimitable bust portraits of Kabuki actors. Despite his short-lived career from 1794 to 1795, Sharaku produced an innovative and influential body of work. The prints by Sharaku displayed in this exhibition are reproductions from the original wood-blocks created by the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints in Tokyo, Japan.
