Experience a unique performance at The Bus Stop Theatre where Emiko Agatsuma (Tokyo) and Miya Turnbull (Halifax) come together for an evening of mesmerizing collaboration. Witness the fusion of Butoh dance and intricate mask artistry in a one-of-a-kind show that will transport you to another world. Don’t miss this opportunity to see two talented artists blend their talents in a captivating performance alongside custom music created and performed by Gozu Mezu (Hitoshi Sugiyama) (Edmonton).

The purpose of “Ladder” is to explore important themes of cultural identity, immigration, and generational differences through the history and experiences of the Japanese diaspora. Emiko and Miya have been working together in a creative residency in Halifax, N.S. from April through to June to combine their artistic skills to create a 30 minute performance. Hitoshi has been working remotely and in-person with Emiko and Miya as well to create a musical landscape also inspired by his Japanese and Canadian experiences.
