Dance Magazine calls Tokyo-born dance artist Mina Nishimura “a darling of the experimental dance scene.” Nishimura performed excerpts from her new work, Mapping a Forest while Searching for an Opposite Term of Exorcist, which re-imagined a way of organizing a body and a space where multiple energies, traits, memories, and identities are bubbling up and disappearing. The program also presented I, Ghost, the Other (self), or You, a work in progress created by Nishimura with the Bessie Award-winning Japanese dance theater artist Kota Yamazaki.

See rehearsal photos of I, Ghost, the, Other (self), or You, captured in June as returning artists of the Choreographic Fellows program at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) at Florida State University.
