Recent Works


Dismell, a made-up word by a 20th-century psychologist Silvan Tomkins, is a work inspired by the 9/11 stories with the focus on a biological reaction when encountering the obnoxious smells that occurred in the event of 9/11.


Immured investigates a space that seems to contain freedom, but the space is sealed within enclosed space with no exits.

Do You Hear Me?

Inspired by Beethoven's struggle after he became completely deaf.  Feeling sound from vibrations and metronomes.  


...the evening’s chief pleasure...Fukuda knew exactly what he was doing here: creating a work of easeful harmony...bringing to mind freedom and flight…in this altogether pleasing work. The real credit was due to Fukuda’s modest, tasteful proposal.   -March 8, 2014 by  Sarah Kaufman
