kota yamazaki fluid hug-hug cfaFrom the CFA and the College of East Asian Studies:

Dancer/choreographer Kota Yamazaki founded Fluid hug-hug when he moved to New York in 2002. At Wesleyan, his “stellar cast” (The New York Times) will perform the New England premiere of “OQ” (2015), a stunning work inspired by renga, a collaboratively-written form of linked poetry, and named after the phonetic sound for the Japanese word “palace.” Five performers search for ways to communicate with one another playfully and freely on a mirage-like stage set, created by the architect collective SO-IL.

Date: Friday, February 12
Time: 8-10 PM
Place: CFA Theater
Cost: $25 general public; $23 senior citizens, Wesleyan faculty/staff/alumni, non-Wesleyan students, $6 Wesleyan students
