Tomoe, a collaborative performance of music, dance, and art

April 8, 5:00pm – 6:30pm

Art Building, University of Hawai’i Art Gallery


“YUAN: by Beili Liu,” the current installation work at the University of Hawai‘i Art Gallery, is the inspiration for choreographer Mitsuko Horikawa and composer John Chow Seymour. Around “YUAN,” they present “Tomoe,” their collaborative performance work.

“Yuan,” in Chinese, has several meanings including “circle.” The Japanese character “tomoe” refers to a design with three elements within a circle. In this performance, three UH dance students move within and around the circular installation piece “YUAN” accompanied by the improvised acoustic and electronic music of UH music students.
