Generations of Art: The Sunami Family
November 30 - January 5, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, November 30 | 6-9 pm

"Generations of Art: The Sunami Family" presents the work of four generations of Columbus' first family of the arts, the Sunamis. At the opening reception, CoMo Dance is honored to perform a rare, licensed reconstruction of one of Martha Graham's early dances, "Heretic," the subject of one of Soichi's photographs on display. CoMo has had the privilege of working with former principle dancer of the Martha Graham company, Miki Orihara, as she acted as regisseur for teaching the work. CoMo will be staging "Heretic" in specific detail true of the history of the piece, including wearing the costumes designed by Martha Graham herself. The performance will be played live by a pianist from the Columbus Symphony.

Other highlights of the evening include tableaux vivants by CoMo Dance and the premiere of six original pieces of music, by Chris Sunami, performed by a Columbus Symphony ensemble.
