The Rituals for Earthly Survival creative team warmly invite you to join us for the launch of our 2024 We Shine project. 

“Rituals for Earthly Survival” fuses UK and Japanese arts, spotlighting Butoh, fostering cultural exchange, and promoting mutual understanding through community arts performances and workshops with Japanese Butoh artist Yumino Seki in partnership with sonic artist Rusty Sheriff and video artist Kim Balouch. 

The project will work towards a 3 day audiovisual installation and immersive experience to be staged at Treadgolds Building as part of We Shine, in November 2024. 

The project invites local artists from a range of practices to join us on this journey and to contribute to the creation of a ritual performance that celebrates the deep connection between people and nature.
