Research and practice on funeral rituals and remains of graves, as well as historic sites of High Treason Incident

2020/06/11

Collective research project by Pijin Neji, Ai Mieda and Taisuke Shimanuki for the creation of performance “Antigone” (working title). Revolving around the Greek tragedy by Sophocles and High Treason Incident that took place in Japan between 1910 and 1911, they have been conducting research on the subjects such as nations, family, individual, land and ceremony for the dead. It is an attempt to reframe the contemporary relationship between the “land” and “ceremony for the death” by connecting a masterpiece of Greek tragedy and the real event that happened during the process of Japanese modernization. The members have conducted research on the remains of graves and historic sites and organized seminars with the experts on continuing basis since 2019. At this residency, they will put the results of their past research in order and experiment to find the best form of presentation, aiming to realize it in 2020 or later. Neji and Mieda will hold workshop and talk session about the burial, where they will share the results of their research and vision for the future with participants.
