PERFORMANCE

Good Bye

Premiere 2022

JACK, BROOKLYN, USA

Choreographed and Performed by Kensaku Shinohara

 Good Bye is a response to challenging socio-political questions I've formed over the last 11 years as a Japanese person living in NYC. Some of these are: Why don't people talk about racial discrimination when it is right in front of them? Why there is not a Asian Rights section at Strand Books when there is a Black Rights section? I see some heterosexual men say in public that they respect women, but when they are in private they use exploitive pornography, isn't this a contradiction of values?
