We need YOUR support!
The Grandchildren of Hiroshima is an oral history and performance project, rooted in interviews between survivors of the Atomic bomb and children in Hiroshima. The project culminated in an intergenerational, community performance in Hiroshima in August 2015: the 70th Anniversary of the bomb.
In August 2014, a group of children were trained in oral history techniques and the company digitally recorded 18 interviews between the children and survivors of the bomb: “hibakusha”. In April 2015, 40 community performers have been dramatizing the stories of the interviews. Rehearsals for the production began in July 2015 and the piece was performed at the Aster Plaza in Hiroshima on August 6-8th.
The project is being led by London Bubble and is being co-produced by the Aster Plaza. We are also partnering with Kodomo Net in Hiroshima and Glasio Bluo and the Setagaya Public Theatre in Tokyo.
