Hiroshi Koike Bridge Project: “The Restaurant of Many Orders”
Hiroshi Koike’s Bridge Project‘s acclaimed dance-theater performance “Restaurant of Many Orders” — based on Miyazawa Kenji’s story for children where the hunters make a fundamental mistake and become the hunted — makes its US premiere at SFIAF. This Japan-based performance company is the new incarnation from Kokie, after closing his previous company, the 30-year-old Pappa Tarahumara. Directed by Koike, the piece features performers Ayako Araki, Tetsuro Koyana, and Akira Otsuka; with lighting design by Takayuki Tomiyama.
After the May 19 performance, join the Festival Opening Night Post Show Reception at 9:30 p.m. in the Cowell lobby. Admission is free with an opening night ticket. Meet and greet artists participating in this year’s Festival and raise a toast to celebrate the opening of the 2016 program.
These performances by Hiroshi Koike’s Bridge Project are hosted by Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival, which runs from May 19 – June 5 exclusively at FMCAC.
