Okina by Jun Amanto (Japan)
Omah Petruk (28/8) in this time at AsiaTri 2015 Jun Amanto showing a dance called Okina. In Japan, it is believed that there is a spirit in sound and word. The reason why the human being can continue there civilization in this planet is because the king of the spirit living in the nature world is giving the sound and words lives. The name of the king is called “Shukugin” . He lives in the darkness of all of the forest. He exists as a shadow to keep the lives and bodies of all the living things and let them alive. No human being can see him. But if we are lucky to see him, we could see him as a very old man. It’s because he is the eldest god than any other gods. We sometimes call him as a name of “Okina”. It seems like he is only an aged man but to tell the truth, he is an integration of god of the masculine and feminine who has young forever lasting live. Tonight, Okina who wake up after 2000 years is coming out of the forest of Kaliurang.
