Simulacrum
April 18, 19, & 20
7pm
Pre-show reception April 18
MATCH - Box 2
Ticketed Performance

This US premiere by Norwegian artists, winter guests, is a beautiful spectacle juxtaposing the formality of kabuki theater, the prideful energy of flamenco, and the instinctive physicality of contemporary dance. Simulacrum combines two multi-award-winning artists: the Argentinian-born Daniel Proietto, trained in kabuki, and the 77-year-old Sh?ji Kojima, who moved to Spain from Japan to become a master of flamenco.

Only three performances beginning with the festival opening celebration on April 18! Come see what all the buzz is about!
