EVENT: Post-Memory: You’ve Mistaken Me for a Butterfly
A multi-media peformance and discussion with artists Mayu Kanamori and Terumi Narushima, Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellows.
Performance maker Mayu Kanamori and artist Terumi Narushima present a live performance of their work You’ve Mistaken Me for a Butterfly.
A multi-media presentation with piano accompaniment, Butterfly tells the story of Okin, a Japanese prostitute who travelled to the goldfields in Western Australia in the late 19th century.
Following the performance, Mayu will present a brief lecture, discussing story-telling and memory-making in performance, and some of the issues of identity, heritage, and gender that this work addresses.
After the lecture, there will be time for audience Q&A and discussion with the artists.
