Lost Kamuy

Akan Ainu Craft Association | 2019
Akan Tourism Association Town Development Promotion Organization renewed the program by the Lake Akan Ainu Theater “Ikor.”* The new program that fuses digital art with Ainu traditional dance, “Akan Yukar** - Lost Kamuy, began public performances on March 19th, 2019. WOW was in charge of the production and staging of the videos used on stage.

This program was created so that the Ainu people of Lake Akan Onsen could show their traditional songs and dance that has been passed down through generations to domestic and international visitors who have gathered here in one place. Creators such as Nagi Yoshida, Kuniyuki Takahashi, UNO, WOW, and Daisuke Sakamoto (JTB communication design), who are recognized in their various fields of photography, digital art, and sound design gathered at Lake Akan. In order to produce Lost Kamuy, they combined Ainu traditional dance, modern dance, 3D computer graphics, and 7.1 channel surround sound, and brought it to life on stage with five projectors.

The narrative of this work revolves around the theme of “symbiosis between Ainu people and the Hokkaido wolf” and is reproduced on stage with dance and digital technology. You can fully experience the Ainu's view of the world through the songs and dance that were born out of their everyday lives in which they respect and coexist with nature. Also, the “Ainu Traditional Dance” and “Iomante Fire Festival” programs, which introduce Ainu culture through traditional and innovative performances, have also been renewed.

* “Ikor” means “treasure” in the Ainu language.
** “Yukar” is a word meaning, “an epic poem” which has been passed down by Ainu people.
