Contemporary dance becomes a family affair when emerging talent Fukiko Takase performs with her mother’s Takase Takako Dance Gallery group. Currently a member of London’s vaunted Henri Oguike Dance Company, Fukiko (above) has been dancing under the tutelage of her mother since age two. Mother, daughter, members of Takase Takako Dance Gallery and Portuguese guest dancer Nuno Campos will be performing in Dancing, Passing, and Landing to the improvised accompaniment of cellist Semay Wu.
