Event Info

Don’t miss Nagata Shachu’s season finale featuring an exhilarating collaboration with Sashar Zarif, an internationally renowned performing artist, educator, and researcher. Zarif’s award-winning, multi-disciplinary dance projects are steeped in the artistry and history of traditional, ritualistic, and contemporary dance and music of the Central Asian, Middle Eastern, and North African regions. 

In the Japanese arts, “MA” can refer to the negative space to what is painted on the page, or the silence between musical notes. In Farsi, MA means ‘us’ or ‘union’. The Space Between Us takes these two translations as inspiration for a new collaborative work between Nagata Shachu and Sashar Zarif.
