About the Grant

$40,000 to support Bell (MAP 2012), by Yasuko Yokoshi.

About the Project

As part of her appointment as New York Live Arts’ 2011–2013 Resident Commissioned Artist, Yasuko Yokoshi will create a new dance-theater work that continues her in-depth research of the traditional and contemporary aesthetics and the authenticity and ownership of culture.

With long-time collaborator Masumi Seyama, successor of Kabuki master Kanjyuro Fujima VI, Bell will reimagine the classical Japanese dance “Kyoganoko Musume-Dojyoji” (a woman and a bell at the Dojyoji Temple), which is reputed to be the most important and difficult dance work in Kabuki theater repertoire.
