Rena’s Kimono Story (Part 1)



This is an age seven Shichigosan girls’ kimono. I have many memories with it. I wore it for my performances in Bangkok, Canada and also Germany as well as for performances in Japan. I bought it two years ago and it has many stains on it but they don’t show, so I can still wear it walking out in the street. I used it in a sort of Cinderella story where a little girl lives like an animal in the forest groveling around in filthy black rags. At the end of the performance she returns into the human world and wears this and says thank you, thank you.
