Remembering Fukushima: An evening with Eiko Otake, Jake Price, and Ralph Samuelson

Monday, March 11, 2019
7 PM - 9 PM

On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake, the resultant tsunami, and a subsequent nuclear disaster devastated Fukushima, Japan. For the past several years, Cathedral Artist in Residence Eiko Otake has traveled to this irradiated region to dance, using her body to collapse the distance between her home of New York City and the Fukushima region. Since 2016, she has created a yearly memorial event to draw attention to this continuing disaster. This year, she is joined by filmmaker Jake Price and Shakuhachi master Ralph Samuelson.

This event is presented in conjunction with The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls.
