Not a Leaf Remains As It Was

Studio 36 will present a unique collaborative event by three Seattle artists on Saturday, Nov 15 at 7:00 pm. Not a Leaf Remains As It Was will feature a butoh performance by Shoko Zama, with music by Steve Peters, in an installation/environment created in the studio by David Nechak.

Shoko Zama is a Taiji/Qigong/Alexander Technique teacher and co-director of the Taoist Studies Institute in Seattle. She studies butoh with Joan Laage, and recently performed at the 2014 Seattle Butoh Festival and the Moon Viewing at the Seattle Japanese Garden.

Steve Peters makes music and sound for many occasions using environmental recordings, found/natural objects, electronics, acoustic instruments, and voices. Most of his work is in the form of site-specific sound installations. Since 1989 he has been the Director of Nonsequitur, a non-profit org presenting experimental music and sound art.

David Nechak has an MFA the University of Oregon and was an instructor at Cornish College of the Arts. He has exhibited widely and participated in artists’ residencies in the US, Canada, and Europe—most recently in Caylus, France, and Willapa Bay, WA. He is especially interested in installation art and in the creation of performance environments.

Join us at Studio 36 to experience what the talents of these three accomplished artists, with very different voices and experiences, have to offer in concert with one another. It will be a memorable evening.

Door opens at 6:30; performance begins at 7:00 pm. There is a $10 suggested donation; everyone welcome.
