I am in a body

With an uncanny and innate ability to express the inexpressible, dancer and film star Min Tanaka returns to New York City with a world premiere performance featuring himself and a cast of five American performers. This landmark piece, which seeks to dissect the relationship between words and the body, will be the first time since 1997 that Min has collaborated with American dancers. In conjunction with the creation of this piece, Min will also perform his legendary site-specific solo performances called ba-odori (or, “dance in a place”) at various outdoor spaces across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Be on the lookout for more details about Min’s ba-odori performances later this spring.
