Chisato Minamimura is a professional dance artist and BSL (British Sign Language) art guide.

As a choreographer, I approach my work from my perspectives as a Deaf artist, creating what I call ‘visual sound/ music’. I use mathematical scoring with my dancers, in order to create my choreography, enhancing the experience of dance without using music but instead creating visual sound. Visual Sound is just that, Music from a Deaf perspective.

Scored in Silence – a new work for 2018

Scored in Silence (2018) was a new digital artwork in development, scheduled to showcase at the opening weekends of Brighton Digital Festival 2018 and Manchester Science Festival 2018.  Designed for small performance spaces in museums and galleries, the work unpacks the hidden perspectives of deaf hibakusha – the survivors of the atom bombs that fell in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and their experiences at the time and thereafter.
