You Tube: Larkworthy Antarm's Gorgeous Fuji Musume: Wisteria Maiden
Prolific Second Life machinima-maker Larkworthy Antform produces simply gorgeous videos. In addtion,as can be seen here, she is a wonderful poet. I have not yet viewed many of her other videos, but I plan to, and advise you to see her You Tube channel if you want to see other examples of her art.
Larkworthy's Notes from You Tube:
Fuji Musume: Wisteria Maiden
Larkworthy Antfarm presents Nakanoshima Okiya's performance of "Fuji Musume: Wisteria Maiden," danced by Kai Serapis and the Okiya dancers at Hosai Mura's Kabuki Theater, 31 May, 2010, in Second Life.
A very old and revered Kabuki drama, "Fuji Musume" tells the story of The Wisteria Maiden who is depicted in a painting holding a wisteria branch.
One day she becomes smitten with a young man & steps out of the painting in an effort to capture his attention. Unfortunately, her attempts are futile.
Her love goes unrequited & she sorrowfully steps back into the two-dimensional world of her lonely painting still holding her weeping wisteria.
Wisteria Dancers: Kai Serapis, Masumi Manamiko, Akiko Omizu, StarMoon Yakubu, Josiane Llewellyn, Miyako Akina
