Links Hall in Chicago and Soundfield collaborate on an ambitious multi phase music and dance project involving Japanese and US artists, taking place in Chicago and Philadelphia. Responding to various architectural spaces in these cites, the artists are creating a new kind of collaborative work using movement and sound in equal ways.
For the second phase of the project in March 2008, the US dance artists Asimina Chermos (Chicago), Alissa Cardone (Boston) and Nicole Bindler (Philadelphia), join Ensemble N_JP musicians Ko Ishikawa (Tokyo), Ryuko Mizutani (Tokyo/Rochester), Kazuhisa Uchihashi (Tokyo/Vienna) and Gene Coleman (Philadelphia), Katt Hernandez, Helena Espvall. They all come together for work sessions on March 4th and 5th in Philadelphia, including a public performance at the Mascher Space Co-Op on March 5th. The performance will also feature the video and movement artist J. Makary (Philadelphia).
This project has been made possible with the support of The Japan Foundation New York, Links Hall and Soundfield, NFP.
