Hagoromo

Combining contemporary sound art and traditional Noh theatre performance with state-of-the-art 3D volumetric visual projection, Hagoromo tells of an angel of the moon and her cloak of invisibility.

Location: JOLTED Theatre

The story Hagoromo tells of an angel from the moon, who travels to earth only to lose her cloak of invisibility. Sonically the production entwines avant-garde ambient electronics with the remarkable tradition of Noh singing. The marriage of old and new art forms is further celebrated through the visuals of this production, which overlay state of the art projection and 3D volumetric film technology with traditional Noh aesthetics. 

Researchers A/Prof. Jonathan Duckworth , and A/Prof. Shigenori Mochizuki have digitally captured Aoki’s performance so that it can be presented entirely as a digital holographic avatar alongside The Amplified Elephants in the live theatre space: technology transforms the human artist into a celestial digital form.  

Another key feature in our telling of this mythic story is the use of Disruptive Critters (Duckworth Hullick Duo): an interactive touch screen interface which is then digitally mapped through the performance space by Ritsumeikan University researcher Shigenori Mochizuki.
