File.19 Head and Mouth x Defracto "Yokai Kemame"
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal editorial department)

Soon, "Yokai Kemame" will open at the KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater.
Juggling x contemporary dance x circus.
It sounds interesting, but somehow suspicious.
The illustration of Koji Suzuki used in the leaflet is also in full bloom with a wonderful suspicion.
What on earth are they trying to do?
I exercised the privilege of the editorial department and went to the rehearsal hall.

From the beginning, I was overwhelmed by the high physical ability and the good combination of the two.
It's still just a light warm-up before the lesson, so it's hard to predict what kind of performance will be on stage.
While reflecting on the fact that he was not aware of "juggling," he spoke to Nao Watanabe of {head and mouth}.

Watanabe met juggling when he was 20 years old when he was a freshman at art school.
"When I went to a friend's house, the family there was juggling with four people in a kotatsu. I thought this was interesting! I started buying balls myself a week later."

Juggling with oranges on all four sides of the kotatsuHome? It's a suspicious story, but it's likely.
Watanabe, who is addicted to juggling, realizes that physicality is indispensable for deepening his juggling skills, and works on ballet and breakdancing. After working as a member of a contemporary dance company at home and abroad, he launched a juggling company {head and mouth} in 2015.

"I work in the context of contemporary art, but this time I tried to break through the" confusing "atmosphere of contemporary art and create works that anyone can enjoy."

The venue is a large studio on the 8th floor of the KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater. A 360-degree stage is prepared in which the audience surrounds the acting area in the center.

"We travel around the world and perform in various places, so it's important that the work can be adapted in any environment. This time, we are planning a European tour after visiting Yokohama, Shizuoka, and Nagoya. Masu "

Certainly, juggling and dancing are language-independent, so you may be able to communicate freely with people all over the world.

In a corner of the studio, {head and mouth} member Sakurako Gibo is making a highly acclaimed ball for juggling. The hand-knitted ball is cute with a colon, yet the changeable feeling seems to be a work of contemporary art.
The "shaky sound" that you hear every time you catch the ball may be part of the art.

It seems that roof tiles can also be used as musical instruments. When you line up new and used roof tiles of various shapes and hit a golf ball, you can make various sounds and play a scale.

I don't use "ordinary" juggling balls or music at all. Still, it doesn't fall into the "incomprehensible" that is typical of contemporary music. I don't know what will happen, but I can expect a very free and interesting stage.

Guillaume Martinet, who co-stars, met juggling at the age of 20, like Watanabe, and is currently active in the popular French juggling company {Defracto}.

"I met the two people, {head and mouth}, through a common friend. When I came to Paris, I heard that I was looking for a place to stay, and I invited them to my room. I wonder if I lived together for about a month after all the schedule for the 3rd (laughs). I talked a lot about juggling and hit it off completely. "

I've been creating with Watanabe, but this is the first time I've co-starred on stage. In other words, the unit's work is a "world premiere." This time, I visited Kyoto and Okinawa with Watanabe, and also made stays.

Japanese is also goodI'm improving, so I asked Magcal readers to write a message.
The blue letters below are the letters of Guillaume.

"I want to meet a lot of spectators, so please come and see me. There is nothing difficult. I just want you to enjoy it and receive the message we send as you feel it."
