New Butoh Space Dance: Tetsuro Fukuhara
Tetsuro Fukuhara, the protégé of butoh co-founder Akira Kasai, takes Butoh out of Japan and into the world of virtual realities, information technology, and space travel. This internationally performing second generation butoh dancer uses the introspective and deliberate movements of the Japanese "dance of darkness" to explore modern connections and concepts of space through his choreography with the help of Stony Brook students.
In collaboration with the Center for Dance, Movement and Somatic Learning and Philip Baldwin, Theater Arts Department.

This dynamic performance is complemented by the innovative music of her late husband Ananda Shankar, son of Uday Shankar, leading proponent of Indian Dance Ballet and nephew of Maestro Ravi Shankar. Inspired both by her illustrious lineage as much by the folk and regional dance forms of India, the performance aims to transcend all man made barriers to fulfill Ananda Shankar’s dream of "one world."

Little Red Riding Hood–The Chinese Opera
Presented with the Confucius Institute at Stony Brook University
Little Red Riding Hood: The Chinese Opera retells the European fairy tale of a young girl’s journey to grandma’s house through scenes from eight classic Beijing operas. Accompanied by a seven person traditional Chinese orchestra, Chinese Theatre Works' Little Red Riding Hood melds Western acting and narrative with breathtaking stage acrobatics and martial arts, music, dance, pantomime, stylized face painting and elaborate hand-sewn silk costumes. Don’t miss this production that re-imagines the confrontation between the Big Bad Wolf and a scrappy, spunky Little Red."The production promises to take Little Red on a journey far more thrilling than the trip to Grandma’s house." –The New York Times
"A uniquely different interpretation of the classic tale, cleverly handled and excellently performed…" –Philip Jackson, Queens Museum of Art
