Arashi No Ie/Stormy House

Arashi No Ie/Stormy House
Applicant: Whitestone Arts
Award: £1000
Field: Arts
Support for: interpreter fees for workshops


Arashi No Ie (or Stormy House) is an Anglo-Japanese installation/performance project initiated by Whitestone Arts to explore the ghosts of Wuthering Heights through the prism of traditional ghost stories from Japan.

Through a series of creative workshops, Whitestone Arts and partners enlisted the help of two esteemed artists from Japan (Dancer Ima Tenko and Calligrapher Misuzu Kosaka) to create content for the touring installation/performance working with young people and performers.

For Yorkshire students with little or no previous exposure to Japanese art practices, these workshops would open up new worlds of creative expression as well as providing unique insight into Japanese culture.
