Centennial Kick-Off Event
World Premiere Japan Society Commission
Wednesday - Saturday, February 7-10 at 7:30 pm
Saturday, February 10 also at 3 pm

Japan Society's centennial kicks off with the world premiere commission from Big Dance Theater, the Bessie and Obie-winning dance-theater company led by choreographer Annie-B Parson and director Paul Lazar. Layered with the company's fearless fusion of dance, music and visual design, The Other Here weaves a modern journey through the ethereal stories of famed Japanese novelist Masuji Ibuse (1898-1993). A beautiful projected carp leads the audience through the lives of a master and servant in Japan's countryside (Life at Mr. Tange's), a lonely young man in modern-day Tokyo (The Carp) and the Million Dollar Round Table--the global conference of life insurance salespeople. Okinawan pop music and traditional dance celebrate this revelatory collision of East and West, launching a surreal quest for purpose in the modern world.

Opening night performance will be followed by the Centennial Kick-Off Party.

Tickets: $35/$30 Japan Society members.  Purchase tickets online below or call the Box Office at (212) 715-1258.
