Ainu Shadow Project

AINU SHADOW PROJECT (working title) is a new multidisciplinary shadow theatre work exploring the mythology of the Ainu tribe of Hokkaido, Japan, to illuminate the history and the power of this little known indigenous culture. Created by shadow master Larry Reed in collaboration with OKI, the leading torchbearer of the Ainu culture specializing in the Ainu string instrument, "tonkori"; and Tetsuro Koyano, a traditional Balinese topeng dancer/choreographer and emerging shadow theatre artist in Tokyo, the project will feature several tales from the Ainu epic form of "yukar". These tales will be sung live in the Ainu language accompanied by OKI's tonkori and Japanese or English narration, and will be interwoven with original modern renditions of Ainu folk songs created and performed by OKI and MAREWREW, a group of four Ainu women who sing a canon-like form of "upopo". Reed's original shadow casting methods, which seamlessly integrate traditional shadow theatre techniques, the scale of film and the immediacy of live performance, will complete the production that unfolds a distinctive Ainu universe yet evokes a mythological experience for contemporary audiences.
