Japan 2015 and Hello 2016!

Hi, Everyone How are you? How was your New Year’s start???

Wish you all have a great and joyful year!!

I went back to Japan three time last year that is so lucky!!

When I went back to Japan in May 2015. That time I met many Circus and street performers in Japan. When I was in Japan I was doing Theater thing Musical, straight play, Dance etc….I didn’t know Circus scene in Japan.

I am Glad to meet them.

I came this cafe to meet circus and street performers. This cafe’s owner is street performer. That cafe have many books about circus, street performance, Burleque etc……

And I found this one!

Magazine about Ringling Brothers. And Burnum & Bailey Clown college in JAPAN.

 She was assistant of Clown College JAPAN. She did performed at Ringling Brothers few weeks for Clown College in JAPAN. We talked a lot about RBBB story :) She also told me how is Japanese clown nowadays and she is only one to teach Slap Stick things. Once she opens workshop many people come to take her workshop from all over places in Japan. I am working in U.S now. Slap Stick is very American style, but very simple and can understand all over the world I think. I want to bring “FRESH” slap stick from U.S and tell them in Japan. I wish Slapstick will be more popular in JAPAN!!

All performers!! Had to take picture!!

This time, I could go to see three theater performance!! Yay!! I made it.

One is Japanese traditional theater performance called “KYOUGEN(狂言)” That is basically Comedy. Since I met clowning…. I have been thinking that There are few common things between clowning and Kyougen ;) And I really wanted to see Kyougen. My friend ask me to go together. So lucky—–!!

I took picture with Kyougen Performers.

My friend said ” I want to see collaboration work with Clown and Kyougen some day ;)

Yes I want to do ——-!!

Second one is straight play so COMEDY play.

I knew it but it is really hard to get ticket!!!!! in Japan, basically ticket starts to buy 2months before the show open. So Advance—–!!!

And also this production is really good. Actors are so skilled, Unique, handsome, Beautifule, cute……They all have strong character as an Actor and they are popular!!and TV stars as well that’s why(?). I didn’t research well and I decided to go back to JAPAN is in the last minutes….so…I almost gave up to see that show but my another friend could get ticket include MINE. Lucky part 2!!!!!!

And Dance performance. Main Character is Actor mainly TV recently? Used to ??? Well anyway, popular actor. That show is interesting. Main role guy has such a great dancer as well. I am glad I could see his dance again. Performing Arts style.

And One cabaret show. And one man live. And my friend’s photo exhibition.
