Saeko Ichinohe has been creating dance - merging traditional Japanese movement, music and costumes with modern Western movement continuously - since 1970. A native of Japan and a graduate of the Juilliard School, she is the first Japanese choreographer to win a choreographic prize in the U.S. and to create works for American ballet companies.

Her New York-based company has established a cultural bridge for Western audiences, combining an appreciation of the traditions and art forms of Japan with American contemporary dance. Her company members teach in New York City, in Tokyo, and in cities throughout the United States as guest teachers.

The company, which fuses traditional Japanese and contemporary Western dance vocabularies, celebrates its 40th anniversary. The evening highlights the world premiere of Rebirth , and includes reperatory piece Heian and screenings of past performances.
