This time, we will deliver an infiltration report inside the KAAT hall. Immediately from the calm space foyer with indirect lighting introduced last time. When you open the door, the main venue "Hall" of KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater will open.


The "Main Hall" with a maximum distance of 25m and 1,200 seats is a dramatic space with red and black seats lined up the moment you enter the venue. I also use it several times in private, such as dance performances, but every time I step into this space, expectations for the stage that will start from now on will increase! And the feature of this hall is this red The shape of the audience seats changes by raising and lowering the audience seat floor depending on the seats and performance content!

First of all, here is the basic audience seats. The seats are clearly separated from the 1st floor, 2nd floor, and 3rd floor.

At dance performances, it transforms into a steep slope so that the dancer's feet can be seen better!

That? The 2nd floor seats are gone! Yes, the 1st floor and 2nd floor seats are connected by making a slope. I think there are many users who haven't noticed this change until now.

Furthermore! A parterre pattern that expands the stage space by removing the chair in front of the 1st floor.

There is also a stage with a Hanamichi.

The next time you use KAAT, please check what kind of seats are available. We have devised ways to make it more enjoyable for our customers according to the content of the performance.

There is also space in the hall for wheelchair users.


On the day we infiltrated, we were in the process of maintaining and inspecting the bridge that hangs props and equipment on the stage. I'm lucky to be able to see the "behind the stage" that I don't usually see!

In addition, the condition of the red seat on which we sit is carefully checked one by one.

Thank you for your detailed inspection !!

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

It's fun to drink alcohol and pick up light meals while discussing the impressions of the performance here during the curtain.

There is also a buffet counter where people who bought drinks at the buffet take a break. It is a recommended space to immerse yourself in a relaxing lingering sound.

Finally, let me introduce other spaces. This is a dressing room used by the performers who appear in the main hall. You are preparing for changing clothes and makeup here!

As a small theater with 220 seats, the "Large Studio" is also used as a theater, dance performance, and rehearsal space.


This is "Medium Studio / Small Studio (A)".


The "atelier (small studio B)" facing the roof garden is said to be used as a rehearsal hall for theater and dance.


Nursery room. KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater also provides childcare services for specific performances.

In this infiltration interview, although it was a coincidence, I was able to see the state of careful maintenance and inspection, such as the maintenance of bridges and seats on the stage. There are people who keep their safety in this way in order to create the best stage. Everyone, please enjoy a memorable performing arts experience in a dramatic red and black space!
