CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.
A striking, vibrating, digital solo sign-mime performance by Deaf dance artist, Chisato Minamimura, exploring for the first time in public the powerful perspectives of deaf hibakusha - the survivors and, using filmed and found footage of their experiences of the dropping of the atom bombs in Japan in 1945, their stories thereafter. Chisato's performance blends striking animation projected onto Holo-Gauze and set to a haunting sound composition that you feel through body-worn Woojer straps. This immersive performance is like no other, sharing untold stories of discrimination, disenfranchisement and survival, still powerfully relevant for all our lives. Performers Chisato Minamimura.
