This time, we will send you an infiltration report inside the KAAT hall. Immediately from the quiet space foyer with indirect lighting that I introduced last time. When you open the door, the main hall "hall" of the KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater opens up.

The "Main Hall" with a maximum distance of 25m and seating 1,200 seats is a dramatic space with red and black seats lined up as soon as you enter the venue. I also use it several times in private such as dance performances, but every time I step into this space, I expect more from the stage that starts from now! And the hallmark of this hall is how red this is. Depending on the seat and performance, the audience floor is raised and lowered, and the audience shape changes!

First of all, here is the basic seat. It's clearly separated from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor seats.

In dance performances, it will transform into a steep slope so that the feet of the dancer can be seen better!

2F seats are gone! Yes, by adding a slope, the 1F and 2F seats will be connected. I think many users have not noticed this change until now.

Furthermore! The flat floor pattern with the stage space removed by removing the chair on the 1st floor.

There is also a stage with a flower path.

Next time you visit KAAT, be sure to check what kind of seats are available. We have devised ways to better enjoy our customers according to the content of the performance.

There is also space in the hall for wheelchair users.

On the day we infiltrated, maintenance inspection of the bridge that hangs big tools and equipment on the stageIt was inside. I'm lucky to be able to peep into the "behind the stage" that I don't usually see!

In addition, the red seats we sit on are carefully checked for each condition.

Thank you for the detailed inspection!

Now, let's get out of the hall and take a look at another fun place. It is a "hall buffet" that can be used before and during the performance.

In the interim, it's fun to have a drink or a snack while talking about your impressions of the performance.

There is also a buffet counter where people who bought drinks at the buffet can rest. It is a recommended space for you to relax and linger.

Nursery room. KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater also offers a childcare service for certain performances.

It was a coincidence that I was able to see the state of careful maintenance and inspection, such as the bridge and seat maintenance on the stage. There are people who keep safety in this way in order to create the best stage. Everyone is invited to have a memorable performing arts experience in a dramatic red and black space!
