Part of Japan Now North

Life after Disaster – a conversation with Richard Lloyd Parry and Mariko Nagai

Graves Gallery, Sheffield
Tuesday 27th February, 6.30pm-8.30pm

From the terror of tsunamis to irradiated cities, explore the contemporary environmental issues that have plagued Japan. Richard Lloyd Parry is notable correspondent and reporter based in Tokyo. In Ghosts of the Tsunami (2017), he recounts the events of the 2011 tsunami and their aftermath. Mariko Nagai is an award winning author and poet and her 2017 collection irradiated cities traces Japan’s nuclear past. The authors will read and discuss their work and sign books after the event.


Japan Now North

Events take place across the city, including talks with renowned filmmaker and photographer Mika Ninagawa, writer Tomoyuki Hoshino and an exhibition and workshop with Japan-based photographer and visual artist Suzanne Mooney. We will also welcome documentary filmmakers Megumi Sasaki and the Peabody award-winning Kyoko Miyake, and host the UK premiere of Sasaki’s documentary A Whale of a Tale.
