Company: Yoshiko Chuma and the School of Hard Knocks
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Yoshiko Chuma and The School of Hard Knocks present "Secret Journey: Endless Peripheral Boarder Cont.", a composition created and designed by Yoshiko Chuma. This performance is based on twenty duos that cross over within the frame of forty minutes. Musicians and dancers interact, but not directly - a parallel to incidents of sound and movement, a metaphor for endless continuous circles of life and war. While observing, the audience perceives the results of war and why it occurs.
Yoshiko Chuma (conceptual artist, choreographer/artistic director of The School of Hard Knocks) has been a firebrand in the post-modern dance scene of New York City since the 1980s, has been consistently producing thought-provoking work that is neither dance nor theater nor film nor any other pre-determined category. She is an artist on her own journey. A path that has taken her to over 40 “out of the way” countries and collected over 2000 artists, thinkers and collaborators of every genre since establishing her company The School of Hard Knocks in New York City in 1980.
