PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Yamato was founded in 1993 in Nara, 'the land of Yamato', which is said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture. Yamato travels all over the world with Japan's traditional Wadaiko drums, putting its souls into the unusual instruments whose sound stirs the hearts of people everywhere. They think of the sound of the Wadaiko drums- made of animal skin and ancient trees, some of which are more than 400 years old- as a pulse or heartbeat (Shin-on), the center of life and the source of power which pulsates within the human body. Yamato attempts to create the energy of life, which envelops the audience and performers. What one feels when surrounded by the sound of Wadaiko, brought out by these highly trained performers, is what the Japanese call "Tamashy", translated as soul, spirit, psyche- the basic elements of life.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
The Russian National Ballet specializes in authentic performances of iconic works in the Russian classical ballet repertoire. Founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, the company used their new-found creative freedom, influenced by the political movement, to invigorate the tradition of Russian ballet with new developments in dance from around the world. Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The Russian National Ballet brings to life one of the most beloved story book ballets, performed beautifully by a 50-dancer company set to Tchaikovsky's classic score.

In an imaginary city-state loosely based on ancient Greek myths, generational conflict erupts around how to handle the mass of desperate, uprooted migrants outside the city walls. Inspired by the current refugee crisis in southern Europe, and partially developed through on-the-ground faculty-student research, this play takes dead aim at climate change, xenophobia, and what it costs us to compromise our ideals.
