We have been wandering around Japan for the last couple of months. First up, we went to Kutsukifuruya in Shiga prefecture to visit our friend Riki. He is currently working with Rokusai Nenbutsu Odori performers to preserve the artform.
Murasaki Penguin Work Locations
Murasaki Penguin is an interdisciplinary collaboration between dancer/choreographer Anna Kuroda and sound/multimedia artist David Kirkpatrick. Their work crosses cultures and the boundaries of dance, sound, video, electronics and large scale installation – with a focus on interactivity and live performance.
Highlights include Window at the Toyota Choreography Award 2016 Japan, supported by the Australia Japan Foundation (DFAT), and Shima series works in Australia (Underbelly Arts Festival 2011), Italy (Palomart Eco Festival 2012) and New Zealand (Wellington LUX 2015).
