Join us for a surprise work-in-progress presentation of WaxFactory’s 416 MINUTES, featuring an extraordinary collaboration with artists from Japan and Eastern Europe, and inspired by the imagination of Haruki Murakami. In the company’s signature multidisciplinary style, this unsettling new work shadows an actress whose escape from a film studio sets her on a trail of chance encounters during the hours of the night when things take on a particularly eerie glow. Conceived and directed by Ivan Talijancic.

Free Admission

Work-in-progress video of 416 MINUTES will be on view in Japan Society’s lobby, June 3–5.

416 MINUTES is being developed with support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Japan Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State’s 62 counties, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and A.R.T./New York’s Creative Space Grant.
