"to go away is to come back to oneself"
from This Is My Country by Genny Lim
Footloose presents Falling Flags, a shared evening of dance and spoken word as part of their AIM: Artists in Motion series. Acclaimed Butoh artist Judith Kajiwara performs her solo homage to Iseei pioneers who immigrated to America, The Last Omiyage. Award winning poet, Genny Lim, fresh from travels abroad, shares news and views on her journeys away from and return home to the Bay Area. Genny finds kinship with dancers, Frances Cachapero and Sharon Sato, and collaborates on words and movement to claim their collective and individual identities as citizens of the world in Home.
Frances and Sharon have crisscrossed paths through Pearl Ubungen Dancers and Musicians to Alleluia Panis' Kulintang Arts. Sharon met Judith through Jill Togawa of Purple Moon Dance Project. Both of them were members of Asian American Dance Collective where they met Genny Lim. Mary Alice Fry of Footloose teamed them up because of her excitement in working further with Genny after her Women on the Way shows in January. This production is the first in hopefully many joint projects between Judith and Sharon who are sharing ideas in a new butoh and taiko collective.
