Artist Statement

Purring Tiger is a multi-cultural, multimedia, experimental performance group dedicated to bringing people together in the context of Art, in a subtext of Wonder. Consisting primarily of Japanese choreographer Kiori Kawai, and American composer & multimedia programmer Aaron Sherwood, Purring Tiger uses technology to intertwine the human body with sounds and visuals, and foster interaction. They create an environment where the lines between performer, audience, cultural background, social class, and ways of communicating are blurred. Purring Tiger is currently Artist in Residence at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center in NYC.
