About This Performance

Yoko Ono is one of the most influential artistic figures of the 20th century. Her works as both a performance artist and a musician have not only helped to shape both media in the ensuing years, but have also had wider reverberations in society at large. Her work is conceptually bold and politically confrontational, but it’s delivered to her audience with a lyrical touch – one informed by her dedication to peace and spirituality – giving it a great sense of warmth and humanity.

BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH takes its name from Ono’s Dance Piece X, a Fluxus score that commands the performer to

“Breathe
Watch
Listen
Touch
and move between
the Earth
and the Sky.”
