EARTH IN SUNRISE combines haiku from 12 countries with improvisational musical performance, a collaboration of talented world-class musicians, readers and translators (haiku are read in English, Japanese and Korean). Through the enjoyment of live performance and poetry reading the goal is to inspire the live audience and future viewers around the world with the beauty, depth and social awareness that are the brilliance of excellent modern haiku. Our performance celebrates the international spirit of artistic excellence and is a gift from Kumamoto, Japan.
We hope you enjoy this sharing of planetary art, as an enriching experience of humanity. Our event is inspired by 5 contemporary themes:
