About the show

“Scored in Silence”is a groundbreaking multi-layered dance digital work with its use of the latest technology to reveal the untold and harrowing tales of deaf hibakusha, the survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. 

"Scored in Silence" has been developed alongside partners VibraFusionLab in Ontario, Canada. Audience members wear Woojer© straps feeling the sound composition through vibration whilst watching the artist perform sign mime with 3D projected animation and film.

“Scored in Silence” is created by Chisato Minamimura and produced by Sarah Pickthall, with Set and Lighting Designer, Jon Armstrong, Composer/Vibration specialist Danny Bright, Animator Dave Packer, David Bobier (VibraFusionLab) and Filmmaker Harvey Cash.
