Project for a Masquerade (Hiroshima) (2010-11)
Project for a Masquerade (Hiroshima) documents the making of masks for a Japanese Noh play inspired by the creation of Henry Moore’s Nuclear Energy sculpture, placing Moore alongside real and fictional contemporaries including James Bond and Enrico Fermi. At Twilight, inspired by a Noh-influenced W.B. Yeats play, features a re-creation of a dance from the original play that will be accompanied live at this event by musician Joshua Abrams’s Natural Information Society.
