Fifty years ago, mercury pollution in the sea devastated the people of the small fishing towns near Minamata, Japan. Fifty years on, what lessons have we learned? What is the tide bringing in now?
Inspired by photographs of Minamata by Eugene Smith, Minamata: A Requiem is a requiem for the earth. The multi-media theatre performance was presented in collaboration with musician and composer Kung Chi Shing, together with actors, musicians and poets from Japan, the USA, the UK and Hong Kong.
