Japanese woodblock prints (Ukiyo-e) depict images that evoke moments of pleasure and respite from everyday toils. In Malashock Dance's The Floating World, contemporary forms of music, dance and image-making draw inspiration from this aesthetic to reveal what it takes to create a 'façade of beauty' in the arts today. Choreographer John Malashock and UCSD-based filmmaker/projection artist Tara Knight co-conceived the work, including a four-sided video environment enveloping performers and audience. Bay Area 'avant' cellist, Zoe Keating provides the musical score and fashion icon Zandra Rhodes designed the costumes. (#21409)
