Holland Festival presents Tomoko's 'Nocturne'

The Holland Festival has invited Tomoko Mukaiyama to present her work Nocturne for their coming festival edition in June. She created Nocturne in the aftermath of the Tsunami three years ago. The two 'dead' piano's used in this installation are a metaphor of the disaster and immense destruction that happened to the people in Japan.

On June 2nd she opens the installation at 6.30pm with a piano concert of Chopin's Nocturnes mixed with other more contemporary compositions and video.
The concert is free of charge but a donation to help bring back music to the lives of the surviving children in Japan is encouraged by supporting the organization.
