The Japanese tales of Yamamba, across fairy tales and noh drama, describe a powerful and dangerous woman who lives in the mountains. Yamamba As A Bear weaves various incarnations of this archetype across histories and cultures anchored in the female voice and body. A team of international performance artists, Gelsey Bell and Mina Nishimura from New York (USA) and Shiori Shinoda and Yasuko Yokoshi from Kyoto (Japan) will take a spiritual pilgrimage to and of Yamamba through a feminist history of the performing arts.
