Introducing the profile of the post-talk performers who will hold all performances and comments from Motoi Miura.

Satoshi Ukai: Guest on 8/31 (Wed.)
Born in Tokyo in 1955.He graduated from the Faculty of Letters, Kyoto University.He graduated from Kyoto University Graduate School of Letters doctoral course.He is currently a professor at Hitotsubashi University Graduate School of Language and Society.He is an editorial board member of the magazines Impaction and Tracy's.His major publications include "Invitation to Resistance" (Misuzu Shobo), "The Power to Respond" (Seidosha), and "Beyond Sovereignty" (Iwanami Shoten).He has also translated many of Genet's books, such as "The Prisoner in Love" (co-translated by Jinshoin), "Atelier of Alberto Giacometti" (Gendai Kikaku-shitsu), and "Open Enemy" (co-translated by Getsuyosha).

I met Ukai for the first time in 2006 in Cairo, Egypt.When Chiten participated in the Cairo International Theater Festival, at that time he was a member of the council?was.Luckily, he was one of the few Japanese in the area, and I got along well with him.Since then, he has often come to see Chiten's performances, and he always compliments me with a smile on his face.I know from his writings that he really is a terrible person.I would like to stick to Ukai VS Uno's Juné theory. (Miura)

●Rika KAYAMA: 9/1 (Thursday) Guest
Born in Sapporo in 1960.He graduated from Tokyo Medical University.Contributed to magazines since his school days.Since then, he has used his clinical experience to write social and cultural criticisms and book reviews for newspapers and magazines, and continues to gain insight into the mental illnesses of modern people.His specialty is psychopathology, but he is also interested in subcultures such as video games.The latest book is "A book that makes you love your weak self" (Asahi Bunko).In addition, many publications.He is currently a professor at Rikkyo University's Faculty of Modern Psychology, Department of Image and Body Studies.He published “The Body – A Place Where Reality and Image Clash” in the same department edition “Image and Body” (Serika Shobo).

I decided to invite Mr. Uno, who is the translator/composer, and people I know who I would like to introduce to each other and who I would like to hear from, as guests on a daily basis during this talk period.So, Mr. Uno's introduction is Mr. Kayama.Both of them are colleagues at Rikkyo University, and I have been invited by Mr. Uno to participate in Rikkyo's symposium before, but I have never met Mr. Kayama.I've seen it in newspapers and on TV.So it's a complete first meeting talk. (Miura)

●Itaru SUGIYAMA: Guest on 9/2 (Fri.)
Born in Kawasaki City in 1966.He graduated from International Christian University.While still a student at the same university, he joined the theater company Seinendan. In 2001, he received training at a stage art studio in Naples, Italy as an overseas trainee for artists from the Agency for Cultural Affairs. Since 2004, he has been in charge of stage design for almost all productions directed by Motoi Miura.He has also created many stage designs for dance performances by Setsuko Yamada, Tsuyoshi Shirai, LUDENS, and Delacinera.He also conducts a number of scenography workshops.Currently, he is a part-time lecturer at J. F. Oberlin University and Joshibi University of Art and Design, and director of Rokushakudo Theater Studio.He is a second-class architect.


If I may say so myself, Chiten's masterpiece, Chekhov's Three Sisters, premiered at the 2003 Soul Fringe Festival.After the recklessness of the overseas premiere, Mr. Sugiyama saw the Japanese premiere after returning to Japan.The following year, he performed "Three Sisters" again with his art.Then it became a masterpiece.That's why it's hard for me to ask other artists... (Miura)

-Kumi TATEOKA: Guest on 9/3 (Sat.)
Born in Yokohama in 1967.He completed his doctoral course at the University of Tokyo Graduate School of Humanities and Sociology (Ph.D. in 2004).After working as a part-time researcher at Hokkaido University's Slavic Research Center, he has been an associate professor at Kobe University's Graduate School of Intercultural Studies since 2000.Major papers include "Meyerhold's Theatricality: Encounters with Chekhov and the Commedia dell'arte" (Lecture Literature XNUMX: Theater and Performance, Iwanami Shoten), "Narcissus Reflected in the Water - Theater City Petersburg" (Creative City Petersburg - History, Science and Culture, Hokkaido University Press), etc.

Mr. Uno, the translator/composer, who would be the most stimulating person to talk to?Mr. Tateoka raised his hand from the audience during the question and answer session after the performance of Chekhov's The Seagull, which was presented at the Biwako Hall in 2007.He asked a strangely long question, and I remember him nearly passing out.Since then, he has been invited by Kobe University to perform, and he has accompanied me to this year's performance in Moscow.Her chattering intelligence is guaranteed! (Miura)

●Miwa YANAGI: Guest on 9/4 (Sun.)
Born in Kobe in 1967.He graduated from the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Kyoto City University of Arts.She is active in photography and video expression with female motifs.Starting with a series about elevator girls, she has released “My Grandmothers,” in which a young woman dresses herself up half a century later, and “Fairy Tail,” which is the story of a young girl and an old woman. 2009 53rd Venice Biennale Japan Pavilion representative artist.His latest work is "1924", a theatrical piece on the theme of emerging art in the Taisho period.In November of this year, the second part "11 Naval Battle" will be performed at the Kanagawa Arts Theater.

Yanagi lives nearby.For half a year, I attended my theater theory class at Kyoto University of Art and Design as an auditor.When I asked him what he wanted to do, he said he wanted to do theater.She doesn't give a good lecture because she's nervous when she's in her classroom.So she didn't learn anything, so she had to talk after class over coffee and cooking at each other's homes.As a result, I must have learned more about art.There is nothing scarier than a diligent student.
