In the early morning of March 10th, 1945, eastern Tokyo was heavily bombed by the US air force. More than 100,000 people were killed that morning, with most of the victims being elderly, women, and children.
Artist Kirara Kawachi and dancer Ikko Suzuki have been collaborating since 2005 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.
