"We chose water as our subject.  We consider the implications, feelings and states connected to water in creating a performance for two bodies: one concerned with sound, the other with motion.  Rather than create a narrative, the story emerges through a few choice prompts, allowing the body to speak in the moment."          - Shinichi Iova-Koga


ABOUT THE ARTISTS of drowning man

Shinichi Iova-Koga is the Artistic Director of the San Francisco-based performance company inkBoat, founded in 1998.

About inkBoat: The company performs in theaters and site specific locations. Repertory and research integrate the interplay of multiple artistic disciplines and viewpoints, both experimental and traditional, resulting in original performance compositions. Themes and subjects arise from meticulous examination of everyday life, with primary content arising from the body, resulting in both refined and raw expressions.  We derive inspiration from working in wild, natural settings and urban existence.
