I have been remiss in not posting about this earlier.
. . . a creative resource for people who want to explore the outer perimeter of Japanese art of all forms; a portal for those looking for inspiration to push the boundaries of their own art; a time-bending tool; a forum for discussion; a place for the inquisitive; a spotlight for those that dare; a community that supports Japanese artists on the margins and who will expose their artwork to a North American audience in the form of screenings, exhibits, performances, translations, and happenings of all shapes and sizes.
All the events take place in Toronto, which means I unfortunately have not been able to attend any thus far; however, if they are all anything like this one — Vowls playing Mizoguchi’s Water Magician — then they are absolutely going to be engaging experiences. Just sit back in a darkened room and watch that video and feel yourself floating away; it’s wonderful. And keep checking the Angura! website to stay abreast of what’s going on in terms of upcoming events and recent news from the community.
