Borrowed Light: Innovation in Ancient Arts

Sun. November 11, 2018

7:00 pm (event ends at 9:00 pm)

$20.00 - $24.00

A musician plucks sounds from the air using a laser interface combined with a 1,300-year-old instrument, a dancer melds the elegant movements of ancient warriors with ballet, and a calligrapher uses a centuries-old practice to reveal a new language hidden within our electronic communications. Borrowed Light features performances by classically-trained female artists of Japanese heritage who work at the cutting edge of innovation and experimentation. 

Featuring performances by Miya Masaoka, Shoko Tamai, Miyu Tamamura and Anne Patsch. Curated by Anne Patsch.

Tickets: $20 in advance, $24 at the door, $15 for students with ID at the door.

Made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC.net). Wild Project will host an exhibition of work created during the performance.
