GOTH INDUSTRIAL DANCE VIDEO WITH TANK 9, MARY, GPKISM! JAPAN IN A DAY, EARTHQUAKE ANNIVERSARY YOUTUBE FILM.
Hold onto your gasmasks… we’ve released our Industrial Goth dance video for Japan!
We hope you’ll take a moment to watch it below and on YouTube (a Like/Share is always appreciated). Our team worked hard on this good cause, and we’re grateful for your support.
On the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami (March 11, 2012), La Carmina, tank9, Mary Nine, and GPKism filmed a dance video — a tribute to Japan’s vibrant underground culture.
All day long in Seattle, we raised awareness and collected donations. Our video captures the immense positivity and energy of youths teaming up for an important cause.
The song, “Iudicium” is kindly provided by GPKism, a Japanese Industrial Goth band that was put on hiatus because of the earthquake.
Pro filmmaker Sarkstir generously contributed camerawork.
Mary and tank9 made these informative posters. The human toll was enormous: 25,000 killed or missing, and 117,000 displaced. Cities were submerged, and Fukushima’s nuclear reactor was hit. Today, Japan still needs our help in rebuilding (and continues to experience heavy earthquakes).

Sheer black sleeves: gifted by Sleevey Wonders. I’ll be writing more soon about this marvelous garment.

Beaded black crown: a DIY project. It’s a tip of the hat to Ken of GPK.
On 3/11, there was a Japan memorial event at Fischer Pavilion. The firemen enjoyed our dancing, and one even tried out the moves.
Rose’s purse is dangling with Rilakkuma bears. Mary’s make-up and hair are by Carolyn Wolfe.
Anthony and Genna dressed as kigurumi, and held the signs.
Can’t stop the the Italo Disco moves from popping out.
Goth baby Quill stole the show.
Now it’s your turn. Take action and make a donation to Japan! We suggest Direct Relief International; that’s where our funds went.
