Koncertperformance “VREDE”



【Koncertperformance “VREDE (Wrath)”】

-Following on the theme of Seven Deadly Sins-

Featuring: Other Story

November is a sinful month. This year “VREDE (Wrath)” will be presented explosively with music and film at KoncertKirken.

We are extremely honored to screen Other Story’s film “Phyllis” (The description about the film is found below).

“Variations on the theme of Dies Irae (the day of Wrath)” composed by Eriko Makimura will be premiered. She will collect the audience’s “wrath” and insert the explosive emotions into the piano.

Some authorities say that wrath is social criticism. However, do we really need to define intellectually what wrath means? We will keep tranquility about it until we explode on the stage.

More info coming up soon on our Facebook Page. Stay tuned!

This Other Story short-film, with Phyllis Young of the Lakota tribe from Standing Rock, is a part of the second series of Other Story films, Tribe of all Colors – intimate film-portraits of people who are investing themselves in the fight for this planet.
In these short documentaries, we get close to people who fight to protect the water flowing in the Missouri River, from oil-leaks in the Dakota Access Pipeline construction.


Other Story met Phyllis Young by a side-stream to the Missouri River, and sat down with her by the water, to talk about ancestors, her experience of the uprising against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and about her message to the young people of today going into the future. Phyllis’ Lakota name is ‘Woman who Stands by the Water’.



コンサートパフォーマンスシリーズ「七つの大罪」Vol.7 飽食編




【「七つの大罪」Vol.7 飽食編】No word can be found yet except two: JAPANESE SALOME! Concert Performance Series “Seven Deadly Sins” Vol.7 GLUTTONY will take place at Hyogo Performing Art Center on the 14th of January (Sun.) 2018. Let’s see how she concludes the series with her fundamental desire of owning the buptist Jokannan’s brutal chopped head (John the Baptist) as Japanese Salome. Don’t miss it.



副題に 〜カタルシスへの旅〜 と名付け、1つコンサートが終わるたびに浄化されたいと願ってやみませんでしたが、残念ながら回を追うごとに欲は深まるばかりです。芸の道を極めたいという思いは日毎に増し、もはや生活の全てが芸術に侵食されている状態です。
