To the Shore: ETHOS Episode I

Event Type
Event Description

Art Union Humanscape presents To the Shore: ETHOS Episode I by Ayako Kato. Part one of a three-part project, ETHOS reflects upon how contemporary humans have evolved both spiritually and physically from ancient times. This meditative performance combines dance, movement and music to illuminate the connection between everyday human gesture and wisdom from the past. Newcity Stage says of her work, “Kato is able to evoke whole landscapes in a single exhalation.” Kato is originally from Yokohama, Japan and is influenced by a Japanese view of nature and the philosophy of Tao. To the Shore: Ethos Episode I is supported by Pivot Arts and the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Event Individual Artists Program Grant. It is part of the 2019 Pivot Arts Festival. For more information on this event go to

Performance culminates at Thorndale Beach.
