Kamioroshi, the Descent of the Gods by Ron Richardson Directed by Sonoko Kawahara Choreographed by Momo Suzuki and Kevin Suzuki Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 7:30 pm Friday, December 13, 2019 at 8 pm Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 2 pm and 8 pm Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 7 pm Studio ONE BU College of Fine Arts 855 Commonwealth Ave, 1st Floor Free & Open to the Public: Reserve seats In both Japanese kagura-music and dance, and Noh theatre, the descent of the deity is called kamioroshi. Kamioroshi occurs in sacred time and space. It bends and fuses both dimensions to bring a Shawnee and an African American fugitive slave into an encounter with Japanese peasants during the violent and destructive creation of modernity. Discovering that they share many fundamental values in common, they set out on a pilgrimage to rectify the world. Produced by the BU Arts Initiative and Ron Richardson in cooperation with BU College of Fine Arts School of Theatre, co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and the BU Center for the Study of Asia
