Welcome to the T O K A I D O R O A D blog!
We’re very excited to be launching Tokaido Road, a unique cultural experience embracing contemporary music, opera, dance, mime and art. Okeanos are embarking on a journey of discovery with a wonderful team of practitioners, creators, innovators and technicians. Here, we’ll keep you up to date on the sights, sounds and our adventures as we explore Tokaido Road in a literary, visual, musical and dramatic travelogue. We’ll bring you interviews, musical extracts, literary insights, articles about the art which inspired the opera and much more.
Do please join us, follow us on Twitter and catch us at one of the many ‘Stations’ along the way if you can; we will be touring in 2014 and 2015 from Cheltenham to Canterbury and Tokaido Road Outreach events celebrating the music of arts and cultures will begin to appear en route.
‘I walk forward turning round, like the pilgrim who carries a mask on his back.’
– Nancy Gaffield (from Tokaido Road)
‘It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.’
― Ernest Hemingway
