Overview

It's been about four years since the new coronavirus infection spread around the world.
I think everyone has lived with various thoughts in their lives, at work, with their families, or alone.Some people may have been forced to think deeply about what is most important to them, others may have felt that they were unable to definitively understand each other with someone they thought they understood, and there may have been breakups and encounters. That's probably true.
Why not share the thoughts and feelings you've been hesitating to put into words over the past four years with a group of people, put them into rap, and sing?
The final presentation will be made on the theater tram.If there are people who do not want to show their faces during the presentation, we will consider having them masked.Please feel free to participate.

<Comment>
When I think about what happened during the coronavirus pandemic, I get a feeling that I can't quite put my finger on.I can't say for sure whether that was bad or what could have been done to improve it.It's not anyone's fault, but the current situation is a result of someone else's choices.If you think like that, you'll end up worrying a lot.Then, I felt like I was somehow useless because I couldn't express my feelings into words.
During the coronavirus pandemic, I was alone in my room and felt a little tired.And I felt like screaming.I didn't do it because I'm an adult.I realize now that I should have shouted at that time.
I think there are many people like me who have feelings that cannot be separated.Please tell me about your inseparable feelings.If you can't express it in words, you can dance.You could try writing it into a letter.I would like you to let me know a lot about what's happening right now.Whether it's sentimental feelings, harsh realities, or vague thoughts, why not shout it out on stage now rather than later?

<Comment>
I have often heard that the coronavirus pandemic is unnecessary.I think he meant refraining from doing things that don't need to be rushed.My child was born in 2021.Due to the coronavirus pandemic, I was unable to attend the birth, and my partner and I both felt lonely, and I'm sure the newborn child felt the same way.In my mind, I was shouting, ``Is it unnecessary or urgent to attend a birth? Don't be silly!'' However, hospital workers are constantly battling the anxiety of infection and do nothing but care for the patients in front of them. I don't think there was.I look back on those days and wonder who was at fault.It's not anyone's fault, but I think it's poisonous in a world like this where you can't even say what you want to say.Why not turn the poison that has accumulated inside us into art called rap or poetry and release it on stage?
