Yusuke Ono

 
 

This film is part of my “Record New York” series featuring raw, intimate and impromptu performances of artists in New York.

August 20, 2014 – Looked for locations around Williamsburg to film a performance with Yusuke Ono. This is the second video we shot, on the noisy Williamsburg bridge right before the sun set. You’ll see how it gets drastically darker towards the end of the video. Yusuke Ono came from Tokyo to New York earlier this year to perform for the first time outside of Japan and looking for new inspiration in New York. He regularly performed as a street artist around Williamsburg during his stay here. He was also doing a few impromptu performances at Bassanova Ramen (New York’s best ramen place!) which is where I was introduced to him. He is currently back in Japan, where he performs in the Tokyo area. Very glad I got to meet him.
