Smack Mellon Gallery, in DUMBO, Brooklyn, is pleased to host the event: In Serenity, We Face. In spite of international economic and political hardships facing the art world in recent years, experimental theater/performance remains a consistent project in Japan.  In Serenity We Face introduces five such collaborative groups who have continued to create, operate, and perform for several years in and around Tokyo.  The works in their New York debut range from the quietly comic to the abstractly violent, exploring themes of identity, borders, transgression, and suppression.  From movement theater to improvisational music, they all in some way pose desperate questions pertinent to the time in which we live.
