The starting point for the creation of “Grandmother’s white hair” is the concept of respect and how it is emphasized in Japanese culture. Living with gratitude is a basic teaching that we inherit from their ancestors. 
As an attempt to translate the notion of respect to the physical state, the performers create Grandmother’s hair from a piece of paper and unravel it carefully in the space. The paper-made Grandmother’s hair connects the audience and environment, involving dance expressions it creates a spider web visualizing a harmonic communication. Flux of time, root, and memory.

Performed by MalinGebken, Ilse Van Haastrecht & Sayaka Akitsu
