Go, see, feel the world of art
File.19 Head and Mouth x Defracto "Yokai Keame"
Miyuki Inoue (Magical Editor)
Soon "Kai-Kameme" will begin at the KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater.
Juggling x contemporary dance x circus.
Sounds interesting, but somehow suspicious.
The illustration of Koji Suzuki used in the flyer is also full of wonderful suspicions.
What are they trying to do?
I exercised editorial privileges and went to the rehearsal hall.
From the moment, I was overwhelmed by their high physical abilities and good combination.
This is only a light warm-up before the lesson, so it's hard to predict what kind of performance will take place on the production stage.
He replied that he had little recognition of "juggling", and spoke to Takashi Watanabe of "Head and mouth".
Watanabe first encountered juggling when he was 20 years old, a freshman at Bidai.
"When I went to my friend's house, the family there was juggling all four people with kotatsu. I thought this was interesting! One week later, I started buying balls myself."
Juggling with oranges on the four sides of kotatsu Home? It's a suspicious story, but it's true.
Watanabe, who is addicted to juggling, realizes that physicality is indispensable for deepening juggling skills, and works on ballet and break dance. After working in Japan and abroad as a member of the contemporary dance company, he launched the Juggling Company in 2015.
"I work in the context of contemporary art, but this time I tried to break through the" incomprehensible "atmosphere of contemporary and create works that anyone can enjoy."
The venue is a large studio on the 8th floor of KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater. A 360-degree stage is set up, where the audience surrounds the central acting area.
"Because we travel around the world and perform in various places, it is important that the work be adaptable in any environment. This time, we are planning a European tour after visiting Yokohama, Shizuoka and Nagoya. I will. "
Certainly, juggling and dancing are language independent, so they may be able to communicate freely with people around the world.
In one corner of the studio, head and mouth members Sakurako Gibo are producing acclaimed juggling balls. The hand-knitted ball is as cute as the colon, yet the feel of change is like a work of contemporary art.
The “shakashaka sound” that you hear every time you catch the ball may be part of the art.
jp / wp-content / uploads / 2019/09 / IMG_0023_mini.jpg "alt =" "width =" 3648 "height =" 2432 "/> This is a robot that plays music by musician Sylvain Kemon. It will play a bit of mysterious music live.
Roof tiles also become musical instruments ... When you hit a golf ball with new and used goods and various tiles in various shapes, you can hear various sounds and play a musical scale.
I don't use juggling balls or music in everything that is “normal”. Still, it doesn't fall into the "incomprehension" that is common in contemporary. I don't know what will happen, but it looks like a very free and interesting stage.
Guillaume Martinet, who co-starred, met juggling at the age of 20 just like Watanabe, and is currently working for the popular French juggling company "Defracto".
"I met a friend and a friend through a common friend. When I came to Paris, I was asked" I'm looking for a place to stay. " I guess the plan for the 3rd was to live together for about a month after all (laughs) .I talked a lot about juggling and I got excited. "
We have been creating with Watanabe, but this is the first time we have performed together on the stage. In other words, the work of the unit is "world premiere". This time, I visited Kyoto and Okinawa with Watanabe and also made stays.
Japanese tooI'm improving, so I got a message written for the reader.
The blue letters below are Guillaume letters.

"I want to meet a variety of audiences, so come and see it. There's nothing difficult. I just want you to have fun and receive the message we send you as you feel."
