Fisher Ensemble: Kocho
With music by composer Garrett Fisher and choreography by Christy Fisher, Kocho is a multimedia music-theater piece based on the Noh play by Nobumitsu that tells the story of a wandering Priest who meets a butterfly and "liberates" it by letting it dance under the plum blossom. With the support of the Fisher Ensemble, the score incorporates sounds and instruments from multiple cultures. Pianist Byron Schenkman also performs Fisher's new Piano Raga No. 1.
