“Initially, [Tabaimo’s works] seem straightforward, but they quickly morph into something distinct and even peculiar and deliciously inexplicable.”
Hyperallergic

Conceived and directed by Japanese visual artist Tabaimo in collaboration with choreographer Maki Morishita, the New England premiere of the whimsical, mischievous multimedia work Fruits borne out of rust (2016) features a solo female dancer and two musicians playing an original score by Yusuke Awazu and Keisuke Tanaka. The work explores the notion of moving between states of stability and instability, suggesting an innate power to renew ourselves after our bodies and souls have suffered and been neglected.

Fruits borne out of rust is supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan through the Japan Arts Council, and The Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program.
