CHISATO MINAMIMURA

I am a Deaf performance artist and BSL (British Sign Language) art guide working globally with a particular interest in the visualisation of sound and music from my Deaf perspective, and using digital to share my experience of sensory perception and human encounters.

Current project: Scored in Silence

“Scored in Silence” is my new Digital Solo Performance, an artistic documentary that unpacks the untold tales of deaf hibakusha – survivors of the A-Bombs that fell in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 – and their experiences at the time.

“Scored in Silence” was selected for the British Council Edinburgh Fringe Festival Showcase in 2019, and subsequently toured to Tunisia as part of the Carthage Theatre Day’s festival, where I performed in both Tunis and the city of Sfax.

It has also pivoted to a Digital Season, with online workshops and screenings taking place in the UK, South Korea, Chile and Mexico.
