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.
