Ensemble East and PearsonWidrig DanceTheater
PROGRAM
Toshio Funakawa – "Quartet" for Shakuhachi, Two Kotos and Cello
Akira Nishimura – "Threnody" for Solo Cello
James Nyoraku Schlefer – "Sankyoku No. 1" for Shakuhachi, Koto and Bass Koto
James Nyoraku Schlefer – "Oashisu (Oasis)" for Shakuhachi, Koto, Cello and Percussion with  PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATER
This work was commissioned by the American Music Center Live Music for Dance Program with additional funding from the O'Donnell Green Music and Dance Foundation

Oashisu (Oasis) is what happened while reuniting after a rough year of injuries and loss and separation, when all were in need of a vacation from themselves and ready to connect to a place as free of habit as possible. The Japanese concepts of  "ma" (a creative space in which the essence of artistic relationships are made tangible) and "kansha" (simultaneous gratitude and appreciation) provided the framework for this dance of continual tectonic shifts, seismic surprises and deep calm.  
  - PearsonWidrig DanceTheater
