Makiko Yamamoto and The Community Brain will co-host “Giant-Story-Music”. Makiko has been working on “DAIDARABO AND HOLIBURN” based on research about gigantic mythologies in Japan and southwest England, and The Community Brain bases its activities in Surbiton and Kingston.
This event consists of three sections. We will start with a presentation about our activities: “DAIDARABO AND HOLIBURN” and myths of giants in Japan, and Robin Hutchinson, director of The Community Brain, will explain their wide range of activities. In second section, we put a focus on “making a story”, and try to create a story about giants with visitors from different points of characters in the story. In the third section, under the theme of “sleep”, which is one of key words of Makiko’s research, we create a dream world with music. Makiko, Robin, and anyone attending who wishes to will narrate the story while attendees lie down as if they were sleeping. Meanwhile, the three musicians will communicate with the narrators using music. In this section we can see how the narrative world will spread.

Come and join us!
