Shinichi Momo Koga, a featured performer of the recent New York Butoh
Festival and called by some the Fred Estaire of Butoh, returns once
again to New York to play in a more improvised, theatrical form with
Action Theatre maven Cassie Terman, and avant-garde musician Keren
Rosenbaum. General admission tickets are $15 and are available through
theatermania.com (212-352-3101) and at the door.

"Mr. Koga and Ms. Terman are sure, charismatic performers. May [they]
soon perform again together." -- Jennifer Dunning, New York Times,
1/9/06

Koga and Terman enter the empty stage and build an evening length work
from the first moments, gestures, and sounds. They play in a highly
physical realm that includes sound/music and language to explore an
often surreal and dreamlike, yet utterly immediate world together.
Comic dilemma and the pathos of human frailty are woven into a
cohesive, wild, delicate, and unpredictable whole. Joining them on a
variety of instruments is musician Shazad.

Shinichi Momo Koga has been showing work since 1988 throughout North
America, Europe and Japan. A photographer, filmmaker and theater
actor/director, Koga became primarily known as a Butoh dancer after
1991 when he began dancing under Hiroko and Koichi Tamano. In 1994, he
created the group Uro Teatr Koku with Alenka Mullin Koga, which became
inkBoat (www.inkBoat.com) in 1998. Additionally, he collaborates with
Yumiko Yoshioka and TEN PEN CHii (Germany: 1996-2001), Do Theatre
(Russia: 1997-present), Shadowlight Theatre (USA: 1993-1997) and the
group adapt in Berlin with Minako Seki, Sten Rudstøm, Yuko Kaseki and
Yael Karavan. He performed in the first New York Butoh Festival and was
a featured performer in this year's festival.

Cassie Terman is a performer, dance/theater director, writer and
teacher. She began training in Physical Theater and Improvisation --
"Action Theater" -- with Ruth Zaporah in 1991. Since then she has been
performing with the International Action Theater Ensemble
(1992-present), founded and performed in the three-woman theater group
"etiquette" (1998-2000), performed with inkBoat (2000-2001), and
currently works in collaborative duets with Sten Rudstrom, Shinichi
Momo Koga, and Keren Rosenbaum/Reflex Ensemble. As well as
collaborating, she also regularly performs solo improvisations that
incorporate language, sound and physicality.
