UNFIX NYC 2018 (April 27-28)
UNFIX Festival started in Glasgow (Scotland) in 2015, created by performing artist and Butoh dancer Paul Michael Henry. This will be the third year that Ren Gyo Soh will collaborate with UNFIX in NYC, and we would love for you to be a part of this exciting festival!
The festival programme will include theatre, dance, performing arts, music, films, installations, workshops and panel discussion. The goal is to unravel the knots in how we’re living: ecological crisis and renewal addressed through our bodies and physical sense of living. We’re looking for proposals from artists and activists to help us bring this idea.
You can see the documentation of the UNFIX NYC 2016, 2017 and UNFIX JAPAN. Additionally, you can watch a video of the Artistic Director of UNFIX, Paul Michael Henry explaining the philosophy behind the event HERE.
This is a festival to create an awareness of ecology through performing arts, and we would like to create an opportunity for not only artistes, but all of us who live on this planet. I believe the power of love, power of art and what art can do for all living beings, for the land we live in, and for the future generations. We can be the change we want to see in the world. And I would love to collaborate with many people as much as possible. I hope to see you in April.
-Yoshiko Usami, The Artistic Director of Ren Gyo Soh
