Vancouver International Dance Festival presents Kokoro Dance.
Kokoro Dance contemplates transience and imperfection in Wabi-Sabi, a duet choreographed and performed by Kokoro Dance directors, Barbara Bourget, and Jay Hirabayashi. Performances take place at 8pm, March 4 & 5 at the Vancouver Playhouse.
The choreography in these WABI-SABI performances consists of a structured score within which Barbara and Jay have the freedom to improvise. Each performance will be unique. The music, by Joseph Hirabayashi, lighting by Gerald King, costumes by Tsuneko Kokubo, and projected photography by Jay Hirabayashi, were conceived independently from the choreography. Each collaborator intuitively understands Kokoro Dance’s aesthetic choices through decades of working together on Kokoro’s creative projects.
