Description:
The performance is an attempt to unravel and convey the message of JISEI (farewell and death poetry composed by zen monks, samurai and haiku poets on the verge of death) through the theatrical language of music and dance Shohi, the composer of the jisei ‘Asagao’ died at the age of 79 on the fourteenth day of the eight month in 1750. The morning glory (asagao) is a creeper that blooms around August in various colours. It blossoms at dawn and withers on the same day, hence the Japanese name Asagao (literally ‘morning face’) and the ephemeral flower symbolises impermanence.
