Please Cry trailer is ready!
It was a great honor to present my work "Please Cry" at Dock 11 this year in collaboration with composer and sound artist Reiko Yamada.
It's been a long time since I've done a stage work, and in a way this very personal work "Please Cry" was my debut as an auteur in Berlin.
I am happy that this gave me a sense of an artistic direction that I would like to pursue and gave me confidence .
A collaboration project between butoh dancer Yuko Kaseki and ballet dancer Megumi Eda.
DIVINE is an ongoing project. What would emerge if the repressed pain (念) felt by countless women over the ages was put into form through dance?
Taking a starting point from the ballet classic ”Giselle” and the Japanese ghost story/butoh "Oiwa San", a different vocabulary, figure, and shape.

Returning to Mary Ellen Mark foundation studio in Soho, NYC.
I returned to @maryellenmarkfoundation studio in Soho for the first time in eight years.
Mary Ellen Mark died 2 years after this shoot. She was a true New York artist and a true hippie who traveled around the world with her pigtails and one of my most respected dynamic photographers of this generation. She was very kind and friendly.
Her core teams, Meredith and Julia, and Mary Ellen’s husband, Martin warmly welcomed me and showed me original b-roll polaroid photos that I haven't seen since shooting.
