Japanese Mythology

Gerard Jellema is a storyteller with a heart for Japan. He has performed his tales and legends on many Japan-related festivals. This year, he will take us back to the really old days... Early Japanese mythology.

On Saturday, he will give two performances: a lecture and an old-fashioned storytelling show. At 11:30, there will be an introduction on Japanese Mythology and at 19:00, the Legends of Creation will be told. 

Japanese Mythology: An Introduction. 

All civilizations, all the cultures of the world, are built on stories and legends. So, which are the most important legends of Japan? Who are these Kami, the supernaturals beings and gods from the Shinto-religion? And how have they left their mark in modern Japanese culture? Gerard will give an overview of Japanse mythology, with perhaps a little storytelling thrown in.

Kotoamatsukami: Legends of Creation.

The oldest legends of Japan. The stories of the creation of the universe, the legends of the Kamiyonayao (the first seven generations of the gods), how they fought and how they loved, how they created Japan, how they created life and death, how they created day and night... and how they created us, human beings. In this storytelling-performance, Gerard will tell the oldest stories of Japan, the creation legends and the early adventures of the Shinto-gods.

Japan is a land of stories. Ancient Shinto legends, Buddhist tales of wisdom, fables of strange creatures like the tanuki and the kitsune, stories of samurais and geishas... A lot of these stories have left their marks in modern Japanese (pop)culture.

Be sure to visit both shows, as they will focus on different legends!
