We want to thank everybody for their generosity to help bring back pianos to public schools in the tsunami area. With the money we raised – € 1,348.60 – the organization can buy four pianos.
Nocturne (2 – 29 June) was opened June 2nd with an opening concert; a special program of one of Chopins famous Nocturnes, soundtracks and fragments of other more contemporary compositions. The concert was listed fourth best production by audience votes of the Holland Festival and the installation has welcomed many visitors during the exhibition period in June.
I am thrilled to share with you the news that our dance concert SHIROKURO is nominated for the the VSCD Dance Award as most impressive dance production. This prestigious award is organized by the Dutch Dance Days, held from 3 – 5 October 2014 in Maastricht (NL).
On the 2nd of June an audience of around 350 people of many different nationalities got together in the Atrium of the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. They witnessed the Dutch premiere of Nocturne, the installation I created of two grand pianos that ‘died’ in the horrendous tsunami of 2011.
It is an honor that the prestigious Holland Festival invited my work Nocturne for the coming edition in June. From 2 – 29 June the installation of two dead pianos is presented at the auditorium of the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.
It is almost your last chance to see SHIROKURO this season. Coming Saturday 8 March we are performing at Korzo in The Hague. It would be great to see you there. Get tickets here.
I am excited to premiere a new programme in Tokyo’s Setagaya Museum on 1 February.
