About This Show

When they immigrated to Britain, Emi was almost a teenager while Aya was still an infant. Years later, the sisters find themselves trapped together, forced to confront the differences in their childhoods, their values, and their memories. Amaterasu – Out of the Cave is a contemporary folktale inspired by the Shinto myth of the Japanese Sun Goddess and the God of Sea and Disease.

In a vibrant collision of new writing, Taiko Drumming, and movement, Papergang Theatre bring you an epic new tale exploring identity, family, history, and the caves – internal and external – that we hide in to survive them.

Part of Arcola’s festival of outdoor art and performance, Today I’m Wiser
