Yasukichi Murakami: Through a Distant Lens

by Mayu Kanamori

Join AJS members and friends in a theatre party to see a performance about Japanese photographer, entrepreneur and inventor Yasukichi Murakami who lived in Broome and Darwin in the early 1900s. With the outbreak of the Second World War Murakami and his family, like all Japanese in Australia, were interned as enemy aliens, and his photographs lost.

Using photographic projections, video, original music and soundscape, Japanese-Australian photographer and writer Mayu Kanamori goes in search of Murakami’s lost photographs.

The performance is in English, with a smattering of Japanese.

After the performance there will be a discussion with the cast, and we may head to a local restaurant later.

See Flyer and Griffin Theatre website for details.

Book online (preferred) or use the form.
