TYLER TYLER by Yasuko Yokoshi
Co-presented with The Five College Dance Department
Yasuko Yokoshi's art-making explores the complex interconnectedness of culture and history that frames our perspective of contemporary life. Her inspiration for Tyler Tyler comes from The Tale of the Heike, a classic 12th century Japanese epic of warring clans that documents the intense desire for domination and the inevitable fall from power. The central theme of the stories, the Buddhist law of impermanence, has special resonance for Yokoshi; born and raised in Hiroshima, she was often reminded as a child of the ephemeral nature of human life. These stories continue to resonate in our own times as ambition and pride continue to spawn war and greed.
Tickets: 15.00; 17 and under and FC/GCC students 10.00
