Passage into Tomorrow

Passage into Tomorrow is a "living art" installation by IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre, focusing on the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and their impact on the West.

This work was originally created in 1994 in response to paper artist Sandy Bleifer’s Hiroshima Memorial Exhibit.  Based on the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the gallery performance piece explores the relationship between paper and skin as the housing of the soul.  Dancers occupy different installations in eerie stillness -- the moment of the bombing frozen in time.
