◎What is Kaitai Shinsho?
In this series, the various fields and elements that make up the world of contemporary art are broken down into parts, and the origins and foundations of each are questioned.With the aim of creating a new "Japanese theater" and laying the foundations of the theater, we invite a wide variety of guests each time to make full use of each other's fields of expertise to explore the common and indispensable thing = the "essence of expression." It's a plan.We are thinking of a flexible performance that will change the style each time depending on the content, making a clear distinction from ordinary performances.Mansai Nomura will act as the host of the stage progress, and will unfold a <talk & performance> with the guest artists.We aim to convey the essence of performing arts to audiences who want to enjoy performing arts more deeply than just watching and enjoying them.
◎The theme this time is "Shinra Bansho"
In real life, we not only live in the “ordinary world”, but at the same time we step into the “unusual world”.The "theater" and "planetarium" are one of the devices that allow us to enjoy the difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary.I would like to rediscover the “infinite expanse of space and time that embraces all things” while letting my imagination run wild in the “exchange” between the ordinary and the extraordinary.
Please enjoy the night where the theater turns into a planetarium (?).
