Chisato Minamimura: Scored In Silence

14 September 201815 September 2018

Live performance by Japanese deaf concept artist and choreographer Chisato Minamimura as part of Brighton Digital Festival.

The atomic bombs that fell on Japan changed the world, but Chisato Minamimura wants to share how they changed people’s lives. Experience this mesmerising live and accessible performance exploring the impact those fateful days had and the stories of the deaf ‘hibakusha’, survivors of the A-bombs in 1945, blending sound, animation, archive footage and sign language with wearable vibrotactile technology, Scored in Silence.

The performance is followed by an BSL interpreted Q&A session with the artist and her digital collaborators, gaining even more of an insight into history and experiences of deaf people in nuclear fallout and its relevance for all of us today.

Performance times:

Friday 14 September // 1:00 – 2:30pm & 6:00 – 7:30pm

Saturday 15 September // 2:00 – 3:30pm & 6:00 – 7:30pm

Tickets £5 (+booking fee), available in advance via Eventbrite.
