Angura Underground

Thursday, September 2, 2010

I have been remiss in not posting about this earlier.

Angura! is an artistic program created by the members of Vowls (who also deservedly deserve a listen) to be, in their words:

. . . 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.

    Thanks for sharing this. I’m completely entranced by the coupling of The Water Magician and Vowls’ score.

    There’s an event coming up on Oct. 1st:

    KANAI KATSU Double Bill Screening + Gastric Female Reflex

    The site hasn’t been updated yet, but I’m sure it will be soon if you want to check in for more details.
