SIS POOM HAH!
The Japan Society wants to pound into submission the stereotype that Japanese women are submissive, and so it named its winter/spring season New York Womana celebration of the bold cultural contributions that Japanese women in New York have made. The season concludes with choreographer and artistic director Yoshiko Chumas POOM2, A Page Out of Order M to M, a multimedia spectacle that includes video projections, live music, narration, and, of course, danceall within a ruby-red backdrop. Her piece was inspired by Teinosuke Kinugasas A Page of Madness (1926), an avant-garde silent film set in an insane asylum. Vocalist Sizzle Ohtaka and the musical threesome Hannya Teikoku perform live.
