A woman in a window, some stars, the rain and a man crossing a river. . . An entrancing dance theatre piece based on a contemporary Korean short story about a woman waiting for a husband who may not return. Magical images and memories are brought to life by movement based on Japanese classical dance performed by Colleen Lanki and Matthew Romantini, original live music on Chinese and Western instruments from Lan Tung, Jonathan Bernard, and Peggy Lee, and spoken text by actor Maki Yi.

TomoeArts (pronounced toh-moh-ay) is a company that promotes, teaches and performs nihon buyoh (Japanese classical dance).  It creates and presents performances incorporating the forms and aesthetics of Japanese traditional performing arts. Weaver Woman is presented in partnership with the Dancing on the Edge Festival Festival.
