  Through a Distant Lens

 

“…a compelling and always absorbing work…” STAGE NOISE

We take so many photographs. How do we know which ones are important, which ones matter?

After a sell out season at Darwin Festival and rave reviews at Shinju Matsuri Festival Broome, OzAsia Festival Adelaide, and Sydney's Griffin Theatre Company, Mayu Kanamori's multilayered work Yasukichi Murakami - Through a Distant Lens returned to the stage at Riverside Theatres Parramatta in March 2016.

Kanamori goes in search of the missing photographs of Yasukichi Murakami - a Japanese-Australian photographer, entrepreneur and inventor, who lived in northern Australia from 1897 until his internment in 1941 - in order to tell the largely forgotten story of the early Japanese in Australia.  Utilising photographic and video projections, sound design, live music and actors, photographs come to life in a conversation between a photographer from the past and one from the present.

Happy mid-Autumn Moon Festival!  Don't miss Adelaide's spectacular Moon Lantern Festival on 27 Sept featuring the Hong Kong Dragon, the largest lantern ever made for this festival. It's part of OzAsia Festival which this year presents a stunning program at the Adelaide Festival Centre until Oct 4 including the mesmeric Indonesian dance Cry Jailolo by Eko Supriyanto; Play, in which world leading choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui performs with Shantala Shivalingappa in a piece dedicated to Pina Bausch; Indonesia's maverick performance artist Melati Suryodarmo; and Amber - an emotionally charged love story that transcends culture. Influential Chinese director, Meng Jinghui, brings an all-star cast to Australia. Mind-blowing impromptu rock, dance and rapid-fire multimedia all combine to explore the nature of love, loss of innocence, and the commercialisation of sex in modern China.
