"Name is Yoko" Part 1

Name is Yoko features four female dancers (Liz Charky, Ayano Elson, Emie Hughes, and Jeramie Orton) and a score combining an original electronic composition (John Dodig and Liz de Lise) with my grandfather’s performance of Japanese folk songs. The piece, through varied patterns and gestural movement taken from videos of my grandparents, attempts to bring their Okinawan life to an audience they will probably never meet.
