◎What is Kaitai Shinsho?
 Mansai Nomura, the artistic director of the Setagaya Public Theater, plans and performs himself, and every time he welcomes a variety of guests for a “talk and performance”.This is a series that "deconstructs" the various fields and elements that make up the world of contemporary art, and reexamines the origins and foundations of each.

◎The theme this time is "Yorishiro"
"Yorishiro" as a medium for descending the spirit of God.I would like to think about the "origin of art" from the example of "things", "time", "space", and "people" that God relies on.
