Kamikiri: Papercutting Performance

-

Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies, Auditorium

Niraku2 Chinese Papercutting

A famous Japanese kamikiri performance artist, Hayashiya Niraku, will visit Notre Dame on Wednesday, February 21. This event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception.

Kamikiri, which literally means “paper cutting,” is a traditional Japanese art that involves making delicate cut-out on a single sheet of paper. Niraku combines this art form with his performance skills to tell stories with the images he creates. He also takes requests from the audience, transforming their ideas into paper cut-outs right before their eyes, and giving them unique souvenirs of the experience. As an artist, he must maintain a breadth of knowledge about current topics, and use his imagination and paper-cutting skills to transform the paper into anything the audience desires. …
