Press release:

For BELL, Yokoshi has assembled a multidisciplinary cast from Japan and the U.S. to perform in a contemporary reimagining of the classical Japanese dance Kyoganoko Musume-Dojyoji (A Woman and a Bell at the Dojoji Temple), reputed to be the most important and most difficult dance work in the Kabuki theater repertoire.

BELL continues Yokoshi’s collaboration with Masumi Seyama, 82-year old master teacher of Kabuki Su-odori style dance and successor of renowned choreographer Kanjyuro Fujima VI. Through this collaboration, Yokoshi investigates the parallel aesthetics of traditional and contemporary forms and the transgression of cultural boundaries.

Yasuko Yokoshi is New York Live Arts’ first Resident Commissioned Artist, receiving a two-year residency with salary, benefits and a commission to create a new work produced by New York Live Arts.
