The Japan Society's Contemporary Dance Festival continues this year with three revelatory and robust works from three countries. From Japan, Mitsutake Kasai performs butoh master Akira Kasai’s legendary piece Pollen Revolution. Hailed as “energetic and altogether wonderfully human” two decades ago, Sr. Kasai choreographs a revival of this eclectic dance for his son. From Taiwan, choreographed by emerging star Kuan-Hsiang LiuKids is a tribute to death and the choreographer's mother. Performed to voice recordings of Liu with his mother during her fight against cancer, this modern-day grief ritual is full of idiosyncratic motion and moments of serenity. From Korea, Silver Knife by Goblin Party delves into conflicting portrayals of female identity through the eloquently crafted movements of four women. 
January 4th and 5th, at 7:30PM
Tickets: $30/$25 members 
Tickets can be purchased online, or by visiting/calling the Box Office at (212) 715-1258.
