Description

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