Tanaka will perform his site-specific and improvisational on-going project entitled Locus Focus in the fifth floor gallery and outdoor terraces, in conjunction with the exhibition and work of Cecil Taylor.
About the program
Tanaka is a renowned Japanese dancer and choreographer whose unique style incorporates a variety of movement techniques and draws consistent inspiration from changes in the natural world. Taylor’s relationship with Tanaka is one of mutual admiration and influence. After performing together across Japan in the late 1980s, they collaborated on a site-specific performance on Mercer Street for the Guggenheim Museum (1994) and more recently performed together at a ceremony recognizing Taylor’s receipt of the 2013 Kyoto Prize.
