This event has ended.

"3.10 Words from 100,000 People" is a dance performance and sound collage that has been staged every year since 2005 on the same date. The title is a reference to March 10th, 1945, when eastern Tokyo was heavily bombed by the US air force in the early hours of the morning. More than 100,000 people were killed that morning, with most of the victims being elderly people, women and children.

Artist Kirara Kawachi and dancer Ikko Suzuki have been collaborating since 2003 and putting on an annual performance to tell this story that should be shared with the modern world. The performance comprises testimonials by those who experienced the air raids, physical expression through dance, and the space located in Gallery éf, one of the only buildings that survived the bombing.

Admission limited to 30 per session, reservations by email required.
Booking will close as soon as tickets run out.
