Performance artist Masanari Kawahara and musician Sho Nikaido team up for a sensory overload featuring music, movement, and video at the Bryant-Lake Bowl. Kawahara is an actor, puppeteer, and performer whose skills in Japanese butoh movement transfix audiences with a haunting presence. Here he brings his specialized technique to dialogue with Nikaido’s solo band, Celica, which is releasing its first album,Bouquet for the Sunset U’ve Never Seen. The album comes with a newsprint zine that includes artwork created by Nikaido, and is inspired by his recent visit home to Japan.
