[Press Release] New York, NY (FOR RELEASE 06.08.17)  Celebrated for her captivating work with the Martha Graham Dance Company, dancer/choreographer Miki Orihara premieres the second incarnation of her multi-media work, In the Box (ITB). Directed by theatrical visual-effects specialist Hiroyuki Nishiyama (a.k.a. nissy), this new experimental dance-theater piece features performances by Bessie Award winner Orihara with original music by best-selling Sony Music artist Senri Oe. Using cutting edge animations and projections from Japan, In the Box 2 (ITB2) juxtaposes three-dimensional sounds and images with the flesh and bones of a dancer and her moving shadow.
I am thrilled to be collaborating again with these innovative Japanese artists, says Orihara. Together we have formed a unique collaboration of movement and technology. Through animations, interactive projections, and my own shadow, I will embark on a meditative journey of inner and outer discovery. I encourage audience members to join me in this search for the meaning of life and challenge them to find their own box.

ITB2 follows the 2015 premiere of ITB which explored the paradox of Where Technology Meets the Body inspired by Schrödingers cat (quantum mechanics). ITB 2 picks up where its predecessor left off and opens the book of our lives in a paradoxical nature. ITB2 explores human nature by mixing the human body with technology, explains Orihara. Audiences will experience entirely new sensations! Using a streamlined technology of sensor system and infrared camera, audiences can enjoy the dancers motions and visual expressions through streamlined technology including CG, infrared cameras, and three-dimensional audio.

[About Senri Oe]
A New York resident for the past decade, Senri Oe is making a name for himself as an innovative, engaged and highly creative member of the jazz community. Though he has proved his skill as a songwriter, pianist, singer and more, he prefers to describe himself simply as a jazz musician who loves to write music as well as perform on piano. In the four jazz albums Senri has released as a leader since 2012, hes shown himself to be versatile and adventurous, exploring different facets of jazz with each CD. From a two-horn quintet (Boys Mature Slow, his 2012 stateside debut) to a full big band (2013s Spooky Hotel) to a straight-ahead trio (Collective Scribble, 2015) to a vocal showcase (2016s Answer July, featuring the likes of Sheila Jordan, Theo Bleckmann, Becca Stevens, and Lauren Kinhan of New York Voices), Senri makes it clear hes comfortable in a variety of configurations.
