A performance by Sachiko Hara
Hiroshima Monster Girl is a solo performance by Sachiko Hara. In 30 minutes she tells what happened in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, how a girl survived there, how she continues to live, how she later meets a girl from Fukushima, what she wishes for the world today. Sachiko Hara speaks a haunting text and plays with strong body expression and interacts with projected video images. The music was composed by the Japanese improvisation musician Kazuhisa Uchihashi. Pictures by Goro Shikoku are shown, who painted pictures about Hiroshima all his life.
A talk format by and with Sachiko Hara
The Hiroshima Salon is different every time. They are different themes, with different guests and different content in different places.
This is the place where I discuss with the guests the personal reports about the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, about nuclear problems of the world, about the friendship between Japan and Germany and about world peace. The viewers see my home video recordings, which I shot in Hiroshima, Fukushima, Tokyo and Germany.
