The dance piece, Soil and Soul is part of the performance Land of Kamuy which is based on the myth of the Ainu tribe, the indigenous people of Hokkaido, Japan. Their profound respect for “Kamuy”, the spiritual god of nature, I discovered the sanctity and beauty in their rustic living. This performance represents their faith, ritual, and devotion to Kamuy. Expressing their sacredness through the performance based on the folklore of Kamuy, collaboration with the Butoh movements, traditional dance and storytelling, poetry unifies film and animation. Also this project is the message from the Kamuy, to protest against environmental destruction.
