Please join us next Friday, November 18th at 3 p.m. in the Ford Theater for the second Friday Faculty Colloquium. Music professor Mike Nord will present, “Noru Ka Soru Ka: Collective Free Improvisation with Music and Dance”.
Noru Ka Soru Ka is a collaboration between dancers Makoto Matsushima and Mao Arata from Tokyo, Japan and musicians Georg Hofmann from Zurich, Switzerland and Professor Mike Nord. Sharing a passion for collective improvisation, Noru Ka Soru Ka has developed a unique artistic language embracing the musical, dance, and theater traditions of Japan and the west. Their evocative work is a bridge between two cultures, recognizable to both while being exclusively neither. Nord’s faculty colloquium presentation will focus on work from the group’s newly released DVD recording and the artistic approach that underlies it.
