Fri, March 10, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM HST
Russian choreographer Viktoria Naraxsa will be presenting a solo theatrical performance for the first time in Hawai'i hosted at The ARTS at Marks Garage.
Viktoria Naraxsa is a Moscow based theater director, choreographer and performing artist. She graduated from the St. Petersburg Institute of Performing Art in Russia and has an extensive background in theater. Naraxsa has choreographed Pussy Riot’s performance "Chaika" and worked with Nadya Tolokonnikova in New York last year.
Masami Teraoka, Hawaii’s Internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, is bringing Viktoria Naraxsa from Russia to Hawai'i as part of his upcoming solo art exhibition at the Koa Art Gallery.
Naraxsa’s illustrious experience as a performance artist and choreographer has spanned from Russia and Germany to New York, working with celebrated performance artists including the ever controversial Pussy Riot.
The Pussy Riot is a favorite inspirational muse for Teraoka, whose own controversial works have given notoriety in the art world. Through his immersion with Pussy Riot for his latest body of work, Naraxsa has agreed to come to Hawai'i to conduct an immersive performing arts event in a joint project envisioned with Teraoka.
