– Sacrifice/ Sacral Dance, Hiroshima


Performance, 2011


The nuclear plant has been leaking radiation since the earthquake. Without a resolution, the government and mass media keep concealing the fact. 
In Hiroshima, Japan, where the first atomic bomb was dropped, I did a Performance Ritual.

I form a communion by folding the ORIGAMI crane together, offering prayer, and dancing together in a circle. We burned the ORIGAMI bird as a sacrifice at the riverbank together.
Thousands of people jumped into the river and drown right after the atomic bomb was dropped in 1945, in search of water. Ashes were scattered in the river.
