About the event

Relative Audience: a multi-media intergenerational dance performance by Marina Fukushima

Co-produced by Theatre of Yugen

Relative Audience explores the act of witnessing the shifting distances (geographic and immaterial) that exist in family. As children, siblings, and parents perceive each other in many ways, the work looks at the impact of witnessing and also being witnessed over long durations of time. Observing family connections, the work reflects on the difficulties of caring for each other through varied proximity. Relative Audience features Marina Fukushima and her parents (both visual artists), Hiroki and Michiko Fukushima, as two contrasting generations of immigrants to the United States from Japan. An additional layer is composed of interviews and physical interactions with Asian American seniors in their 80’s and 90’s exploring the theme of family connections as immigrants. Development of the video and installation is created in collaboration with interdisciplinary artist Isak Immanuel. As a multi-media intergenerational project, the work is based on questions of how the physical presence, borders of life, and absence influences the unique family connection generationally.
