at Millennium Park, Jay Pritzker Pavilion | 201 E Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60602

This contemporary dance premier by Ayako Kato examines movement dialogue between human and fish which trace the eroded, yet inseparable relationship between human and nature, gazing into their antagonistic values and common principles to find equilibrium. Taking inspiration from Iwaishima and Fukushima, Japan, this interactive solo engages audiences to transform their perception of nature’s impact on humans and humans’ impact on environment.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
