YOZAKURA

Yozakura (Night Sakura) is an old Japanese tradition of viewing cherry blossom at night. Sakura blossoms are the symbolic flowers of the spring, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life.  The light, the sound and the performance by Sakurako explore  the fragility of the blossom in - between the light and the darkness.
