MA The Space Between Us
In the Japanese arts, "MA" can refer to the negative space to what is painted on the page, or the silence between musical notes. In Farsi, MA means 'us' or 'union'. MA | The Space Between Us takes these two translations as inspiration for a new collaborative work between Nagata Shachu and Sashar Zarif. MA | The Space Between Us features an exhilarating collaboration with Sashar Zarif, whose award-winning, multi-disciplinary dance projects are steeped in the artistry and history of traditional, ritualistic, and contemporary dance and music of Central Asian, Middle Eastern, and North Africa.
