[Appearance] Spa Kanfan (10 junior high and high school students from Shizuoka Prefecture / Miyu Akiyama, Natsumi Iyama, Kanako Sakurai, Shunsuke Takase, Miki Nanjo, Riko Masuda, Shizuka Miyagijima, Haruka Miyagijima, Rumi Murase, Kiyoka Watanabe)

Mr. Nyakam's body resides in the children of SPAC.If you can feel that moment of miracle...that is your dream.
    --Tomohiko Imai (actor)

I fully support this SPAC attempt and the children who participate in it.I firmly believe that a "new future" will be born from such reckless and bold challenges.
--Yasuharu Katsuyama ("Condors" producer)

It was a performance that was unlikely to be possible, as "a world-class contemporary dance work performed by children."I think that it may be a big vein as a program for public theaters in Japan.
-- Satoshi Miyagi (General Artistic Director of SPAC)
