Aomori Project: Of Landscapes Remembered

These photographs were taken at the dress rehearsal of Sioned Huws Aomori Project at Greenwich Dance Agency last Thursday evening.  The performance brings together local people from Greenwich and professional artists from Japan in a new dance work, especially created for the Borough Hall. Three shamisen musicians, one minyo singer and two Tsugaru dancers join a group of 5-70 year olds in a work  continued since 2008 from Sioned’s first experience of harsh winter conditions in  Aomori, a region of Northern Japan.

You can keep up to date with Sioned as she continues to explore Japan and gather material for Aomori Project: Of Landscapes Remembered at her new Greenwich Dance Blog.

  1. God I love that isolated shot you’ve done of one of the dancers – that one of the woman in orange trousers dancing by herself with the chairs is sooooo nice…

  2. Thanks Max : ) I agree that’s probably the best shot……was a hard shoot with the very low lighting would have been useful to have the D3 (s or x)….if only!
