Rehearsing/Devising for BUNKA Award Show

The Bunka (Cultural) Award is awarded by the Japan Sri Lanka Friendship Cultural Fund in Sri Lanka. The Bunka Awards are presented annually by the Fund which was established in 1993, on the initiative of the Japanese Solidarity Association and the Japanese Commerce and Industry Association in Sri Lanka, in collaboration with the Embassy of Japan. It is awarded to Sri Lankan artists and creative persons in various fields, in order to encourage and promote individual and collective talent in these fields in Sri Lanka. This year, Artistic Director of Mind Adventures, Tracy Holsinger, is one of the recipients.

Some members of Mind Adventures and a guest actor, directed by Tracy, are currently devising a short piece of theatre (as yet unnamed!) for a show on the 22nd of October to commemorate the recipients of the Award.

This new piece is entirely physical, and uses a simple story, told through movement and some theatrical devices, like mime and shadowplay.

Here are some photos from an initial devising session. All photos by Deshan Tennekoon.
