About this show

In both Japanese kagura music and dance, and Noh theater, the descent of the deity is called kamioroshi. Kamioroshi occurs in sacred time and space. It bends and fuses both dimensions to bring a Shawnee Indian and an African American fugitive slave into an encounter with Japanese peasants during the violent and destructive creation of modernity. Discovering that they share many fundamental values in common, they set out on a pilgrimage to rectify the world.
