Friday, February 03, 2006On Friday, February 3rd (8pm) and Saturday, February 4th (9pm), UCLA Live will be presenting Japanese dance ensemble Pappa Tarahumara at Royce Hall. Named after the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico's Copper Canyon but influenced by an Asian sense of time, motion, and lyricism, this Japanese dance ensemble captures the enduring wonder and indescribable beauty in all things. Combining the innovation of modern dance with the pacing and intense symbolism of ancient Japanese Noh theater, artistic director Hiroshi Koike creates a beautiful and powerfully evocative milieu, using a town by the sea in the 60s as its motif. A chorus of voices punctuate the scene with longing and nostalgia as a ship slowly crosses the stage, promise of escape just beyond.
