Go behind the scenes of a new theatre play and a new contemporary art exhibition exploring the cultural legacy of Hiroshima.
This event at the 2020 Just Festival marks the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Japan. This catastrophe is referred to as ‘the mistake’ on the epitaph of the Memorial Monument for Hiroshima City of Peace.
Be the first to see a new theatre play in the making aptly entitled The Mistake by Michael Mears as part of Peace Cranes – a forthcoming group exhibition about the cultural legacy of Hiroshima. Working remotely under lockdown with the performers Michael Mears and You-Ri Yamanaka, theatre director Jatinder Verma has put together an exclusive film collage of extracts and images from the making of The Mistake.
All three will be around for a live post-show Q&A and will be joined by the Peace Cranes exhibition co-curators Iliyana Nedkova and Heather Kiernan. Find out how The Mistake interweaves the stories of a survivor, scientist and soldier to create a compelling drama and what happens when scientific discoveries unlock the power of nature.
Peace Cranes is an initiative of Edinburgh Peace & Justice Centre. Co-curated by Iliyana Nedkova and Heather Kiernan, this touring group exhibition will feature works by Michael Mears and You-Ri Yamanaka and other international contemporary artists alongside 140,000 origami peace cranes, and will start its tour as part of Just Festival 2021.
