Robert Wilson Honors Dancer

koolDuring the 1960s, Suzushi Hanayagi ventured alone to New York, in an unusual act of courage for a Japanese woman of her generation, armed with training in traditional dance to forge a new form of Western-style modern dance. Avant-garde theater director Robert Wilson, who worked with Hanayagi in the U.S., has created what he calls their ‘last collaboration,’ titled “KOOL – Dancing in My Mind.” I missed seeing the piece earlier this year when it was at the Guggenheim in New York. It will be performed next month in East Hampton, NY.
