Armitage Gone! Dance presents "You Took a Part of Me"
Armitage Gone! Dance
Japan Society proudly presents You Took a Part of Me, a world premiere dance production with choreography by Karole Armitage, performed by her company Armitage Gone! Dance. This new work is inspired by the 15th-century noh play Nonomiya, in which the ghost of one of Prince Genji’s jealous lovers from The Tale of Genji returns to the world of the living. It explores erotic entanglement, unresolved attachments and the search for harmony, all of which are hallmarks of mugen noh, or a play that features a ghost or spirit. The lead role, performed by Armitage’s longtime collaborator, Megumi Eda, highlights sinuous, seductive movement executed with ferocious intensity in a dream-like state. The show is set to live music, composed by Reiko Yamada and performed by Yuki Isami. Presented by and at Japan Society, this event is part of Carnegie Hall’s Migrations: The Making of America festival.
