Divine Generations

Presented by La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club at KinoSaito

KinoSaito Art Center is pleased to partner with La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club for Leah Ogawa’s summer 2023 residency. Leah is developing DIVINE GENERATIONS vol. 02, a new performance work investigating spaces of in-between and contradiction where the object lives within the duality of discrepancy, further questioning the real truth. This body of work is a continuation of Ogawa’s Divine Generation series, drawing inspiration from a legendary two-thousand-year-old cherry tree Jindai Zakura ( 神代桜 ), translated as “Divine Generations,” and Dakotsu Iida (1885-1962), a well-regarded haiku poet, both of which existed on the same land of Yamanashi, Japan. Combining nature and literature, this piece addresses the sedimentary nature of time and how movements in objects witness our human memories through strings. Vol 02, which will begin at her KinoSaito residency, builds on previous works and will examine specific movements, mechanisms, and sounds.


Leah Ogawa’s residency and KinoSaito’s partnership with La MaMa are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
