#MUSIKDRAMATIK #SURREALISME #AVANTGARDE #DANS #IDENTITET 

En semi-autobiografisk udforskning af instruktør Haruko Crow Nishimuras kamp med identitet, depression og barndomstraumer, men også åbenbaringen af en personlig styrke. Performance bestående af livemusik, teater, dans, visualiseringer og fortællekunst, der behandler problematikkerne humoristisk og fantasifuldt, når Nishimura præsenterer familien som Godzilla-monstre, mens hun selv bevæger sig igennem de eventyr moderen læste op i barndommen. I et flerdimensionelt kludetæppe-univers skabt gennem filmiske visualiseringer fremtryller og trøster Nishimura hendes kvindelige forfædre med håndfiltet uld, titusinde håndmalede silkeblomster og strikkede trøjer. 

Præsenteres i samarbejde med H.C Andersen Festivals. 


ENGLISH

A semi-autobiographical exploration of Haruko Crow Nishimura’s struggle with identity, depression, childhood trauma, but also the awakening of personal power. A performance consisting of live music, theater, dance, visuals and storytelling that deals humorously and imaginatively with the themes, when Nishimura describes the family as Godzilla monsters, while she goes through three fairy tales that were read to her by her mother in her childhood. In a universe of a multi dimensional patchwork quilt created with cinematic imagery Nishimura conjures and consoles her female ancestors through the use of hand felted wools, ten thousand hand painted silk flowers, and knitted sweaters.
