『shuffleyamamba』, a dance piece inspired by the traditional Noh play Yamamba (The Mountain Crone), is a project by choreographer and video artist Yasuko Yokoshi which reflect on the inheritance of female artists' artistic skill. The old mountain which whom the young female artist encounters in the Noh play implies the touring in the mountains of Kugutsushi which is said to be: ancestors of the female performing arts and can be seen as a model of female dancers. With this title, Yokoshi tries to dismantle the female figure as an icon in the history of both western and eastern traditional performances and to give a thought on the inheritance of artistic skills from the perspective of contemporary female artist.
Accompanying Yokoshi during the March 2019 residency period is guest artist Noriko Sunayama and performers Narumi Ueno, Haruna Shibuya, Juri Nishioka, Sawami Fukuoka, and Terunobu Osaki, who will prepare for a performance at Izushi Eirakukan, the oldest theater in Kinki region.
On the penultimate day of their residency stay, March 16th, there will be a presentation of the results of this residency period through a dance performance. Ms. Yokoshi herself will also be carrying out an artist talk and explanation of the piece. This is a rare opportunity to watch the performance before its world premiere at the Izushi Eirakukan theater in October of 2019. Please come check it out!
