《The Reversed Song, A Lecture on "Shiro-Kitsune (The White Fox)"》

狐の伝説「信太妻」をレクチャーパフォーマンスで語り直す。岡倉覚三(天心)は、1913年ボストンで、「信太妻」を原作に「The White Fox」というオペラの台本を書き上げるが、未完に終わる。だが実は、隠されていたもう一つのオペラの台本「しろきつね」があった。本作では「しろきつね」の解説と、劇中の狐の歌の重要性を検証し、狐がかつて担っていたものや、狐がいなくなった現在と私たちを再考する。

This project is to recite the Japanese myth of fox "Shinodazuma" in a lecture-performance. Japanese art critic, Kakuzo (Tenshin) Okakura wrote unfinished opera "The White Fox" for the Boston Opera House in 1913 based on "Shinodazuma". With Tomoko Sato's interpretation of finding another opera script by Okakura called "Shiro-Kitsuke" which was surfaced from hiding lately, the importance of a song by a fox in the founded script is examined through the lecture performance. This project has started since Tomoko Sato heard the story of people who used to be possessed by a fox in her hometown. It explores the roles and meanings of a fox in Japan now and then.

佐藤朋子|Tomoko Sato WEB
Born in Nagano in 1990. Lives and works in Kanagawa. Sato obtained her Master of Fine Arts in Film and New Media from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2018. Making use of a lecture format, Sato’s practice focuses on narratives. By linking issues that arise in the process of investigating historical facts in a multifaceted way, Sato constructs a story that interweaves fiction and documentary. Sato’s works are the product of her interest in Japan’s pursuit of a distorted form of modernization and the plurality conveyed by events that have fallen through the cracks of History with a capital H as well as her attraction to legends and ruins that survive in various places.
