This is a short post...I have out of town guests arriving in the next 20 minutes! I played a small part in an emotional and fabulous performance piece last night at the Fringe festival. The incredible Denise Uyehara was the artist we collaborated with. Her performance was about the Japan earthquake and tsunami. I played the part of a happy memory: an obon dancer. One taiko drummer and fue + myself and Denise as the main character. Denise wore mofuku, or black mourning kimono as her costume with a simple heko obi.
I wore this outfit- a tan and cream yukata with black dianthus, purple hakata obi, a purple and white tenugui, and blue-purple geta plus an uchiwa fan for dancing. Sorry that this is not a picture of me wearing it but I forgot my camera last night and didn't get home until about 10:00pm.
