Kikyo Genso (beautiful illusion in Japanese) is a one of a kind duo consisting of Kishiko Hasegawa and Chris Merwin. Kishiko studied the ancient Noh theater dance and singing as a child in Japan and Chris Merwin has immersed himself in the esoteric music of the bamboo shakuhachi flute both in Japan and at home. Together they enchant audiences with a marriage of the two art forms that are not paired together in the traditional arts world of Japan. The program features elegant dance based on Noh dance accompanied by Zen Buddhist and classical music, as well as folk dances with the words sung in Japanese. The performers are authentically costumed in kimonos and cultural and historical background is given on all aspects of the performance. This show is the only one of it's kind anywhere and is as entertaining as it is educational.

Museums,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
An evening of mystery and revelation. Revolving around the author's thrilling discovery of an unsung Holocaust hero's lost artifacts, Dr. Newborn tells a miraculous, life-affirming story of how three seemingly disconnected lives—his own included—magically intersected over time & space. They did so via the saving grace of the the Polish Jewish Bund's great spokesman, Artur Zygielbojm—-a tragic hero who sacrificed his life to bring the first news of the Holocaust to the West. Newborn's discovery links him by surprise to Zygielbojm's surviving niece, a 75 year-old champion ballroom dancer who brings him under her spell, inducing him to dance-—not to mourn, but to celebrate Jewish survival. A kind of post-modern Hasidic tale of the Holocaust that entrances, beguiles and moves all listeners. (With dramatic visuals)
