Scored in SIlence – Dance Documentary
Film screening of excerpt from “Scored in Silence” (12 mins) followed by a Q&A from Chisato Minamimura and producer Amy Zamarripa Solis (8 mins). There will be sound, music, sign mime and voiceover in the film, as well as a live BSL interpreter.
“Scored in Silence” is Chisato’s new solo digital artwork that unpacks the untold tales of deaf hibakusha – survivors of the A-Bombs that fell in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and their experiences at the time and afterwards. 2020 is the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Bombings and it is also the year that Tokyo will also host the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“Scored in Silence” was developed alongside partners VibraFusionLab in Ontario, Canada and showcased at Brighton Digital Festival and Manchester Science Festival in 2018. It was selected for the British Council Edinburgh Fringe Festival Showcase in August 2019.
It will be part of Disabled & Proud Festival evening performances 6-8pm.
