About

Co-founded by artist, director, and set designer Jessica Grindstaff and composer and puppet-maker Erik Sanko, New York’s Phantom Limb Company is known for its work with marionette puppetry and its focus on collaborative, multimedia theatrical production, and design. The company makes its Kennedy Center debut with Falling Out, a response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Created in collaboration with butoh dancer Dai Matsuoka, a member of Japan’s famed Sankai Juku troupe, the work represents the final installment of Phantom Limb Company’s environmental trilogy exploring our changing relationship to nature over time. For this production, Phantom Limb is creating an interactive visual and audio installation in the style of an old rotary-dial phone booth. Inspired by those in Japan, where survivors of the 2011 tsunami were able to record thoughts about lost loved ones, this “Memory Phone” will offer concert-goers the opportunity to voice their thoughts and feelings on love, water, nature, and loss in an enclosed and serene environment. Both performances also include a post-concert discussion. 

Part of the Kennedy Center’s DIRECT CURRENT celebration of contemporary culture

Falling Out is co-presented in collaboration with The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics at Georgetown University.
