      EVENT DETAILS
      Unit Souzou: “A Constant State of Otherness”

      Commissioned by The Myrna Loy, taiko drumming ensemble Unit Souzou is creating a one-of-a-kind performance on Otherness. Drawing inspiration from the Helena community, “A Constant State of Otherness” explores the experience of home, movement, migration, immigration, belonging, and kinship.

      They embed in Helena for a week-long residency collaborating with students at PAL High School, and elsewhere in the community, sharing the techniques and traditions of taiko. Then they premiere “A Constant State of Otherness” on the Myrna Loy stage in an unforgettable performance.

      This world premiere performance will be followed by a 5-city US tour.

      A Constant State of Otherness is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation & Development Fund Project commissioned by The Myrna Loy, in partnership with Dance Place, Caldera Arts, Asian Arts Initiative, and NPN. The Creation & Development Fund is supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
