"Soil" | Conceived, co-written, and directed by Michael Sakamoto

Co-choreographed by its performers—Cambodian traditional and contemporary dancer Chey Chankethya, Thai traditional and contemporary dancer Waewdao Sirisook, and Vietnamese-American contemporary dancer Nguyen Nguyen—Soil investigates crises in three Southeast Asian cultures while exploring transnational, East-West identities via personal narratives and choreography. Soil features original music by Reiko Imanishi and Shinichi Isohata. Co-creator Michael Sakamoto is a Professor of Dance at the University of Iowa.
