Theatrical company Shiki “Phantom of the Opera” is coming to Yokohama!

Speaking of the musical “The Phantom of the Opera”… Yes, the Shiki Theater Company. It is well established that it reminds me of the name soon, but there are many people who hesitate to say, "I want to see it someday, but it's a bit far from going to the theater ...". Good news for such people! From March, the “Phantom of the Opera” will be performed at the KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater <Hall>!

What is the “Phantom of the Opera”?

Paris Opera in the middle of the 19th century. The curtain of the background suddenly falls during the practice of the opera “Hannibal”. A mysterious phenomenon that occurs one after another, starting with the incident that made a fuss about the work of “The Phantom of the Opera”. What is the fate of “Phantom” and diva Christine living in the Opera?

The Phantom of the Opera is based on a novel written by French writer Gaston Leroux (at that time, it was half-popular with the creator of that Arseine Lupine / Maurice LeBlanc!) This is a love story. Since it began in London in 1986, it has been performed in 164 cities in 35 countries around the world, and the total number of spectators has exceeded 140 million. Even if you are not familiar with musicals, you probably know only “The Phantom of the Opera”.

The total number of performances in Japan is second only to “Lion King” and “Cats”3rd place!

“The Phantom of the Opera” is performed all over the world, but the Japanese premiere by the Shiki Theater Company in 1988 is the same as the Broadway premiere in 1988. It remains in history as the third performing country after the United Kingdom and the United States. The total number of performances is third in Japan after “Lion King” and “Cats” (as of September 30, 2016), which is one of the best musicals in Japan.

The “Paris Opera”, which was faithfully reproduced, appears on the stage. Don't miss the elaborate proscenium arch that surrounds the stage like a picture frame and the majestic chandelier that rises above your head! It's so luxurious to be able to enjoy the atmosphere of the Paris Opera at this Yokohama!

Don't miss the stage where you won't be attracted to, such as gorgeous costumes, stage equipment, the overwhelming singing power of actors, and the majestic music that supports it! ! It makes me feel that.

An impressive stage full of various attractions will surely draw you into an extraordinary world.

Long-term performance in Yokohama area is the first in 4 years!

The long-term performance at the Shiki Theater Company in Yokohama is the first in about four years since the last "Cats". Many people remember, but for three years from November 2009 to November 2012, there was a “Cats Theater” near Shin-Takashima Station in the Minato Mirai 21 district. The Cats Theater became familiar with the scenery of Yokohama for three years and felt very lonely when the performance was over and the theater was demolished.

Such a long-term performance in Yokohama. It seems that the theater company Shiki was being studied for a long run in Yokohama again. This time, the performance for 5 months until August. KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater <Hall> You can enjoy a spectacular drama with plenty.

Gorgeous stage equipment, powerful acting by actors, and music that resonates in your heart will shake your heart.

Book Cafe / Kanteido Shoten

A secret cafe where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of Chinatown and enjoy a cup of coffee or Chinese tea while reading a book. Inside the shop, you can find books about Chinese history and fortune telling, as well as panda-related (?) Books from Saiyuki, Sangokushi, and Kung Fu. There are also Chinese versions of comics that are familiar in Japan, so you may study language! ? The colorful and kitsch interiors that are typical of Chinatown are also worth seeing. There are also outdoor terrace seats where you can smoke.

Chinese tea, such as jasmine tea and lychee tea, comes with hot water and tea candy as a substitute, and a grinning panda jelly.

“The panda, which was just cute at first, has recently become used to drawing and has a complex expression (laughs),” the store manager said.

In addition, there are beer and pound cake. It is a hideout cafe where you can spend a leisurely time because it is located on the third floor of the building. You can also sell used books and miscellaneous goods at the store.

About "Yokohama Dance Collection"

This dance festival started in 1996 with the aim of discovering and nurturing young choreographers and popularizing contemporary dance, and has a long history among many cultural programs in Yokohama. This is the 22nd time. In particular, the competition, which is the main program of this festival, emphasizes the originality of “choreography”.

Shaking the body and expressing joy and sorrow I have been going naturally since then. There are endless ways to express "words" such as words, pictures, and music, but dance can be said to be the "start of expression". “Chore” is a method that conveys the expression method using the “body” of everyone to a work that everyone can appreciate, such as the era, aesthetics, emotions, and values of the person. And looking at the reliable techniques of the dancers who support it, it seems that "joy beyond body expression" springs up.

Anyway, it is a stage that you want to see in real and feel with your heart.

This year, the 22nd time, an art program in collaboration with the Yokohama Museum of Art

Well, this is a historical Yokohama Dance Collection, but this year we have a program in collaboration with the Yokohama Museum of Art. The exhibition “BODY / PLAY / POLITICS” at the Yokohama Museum of Art that was held until December 14 last year was a group exhibition of contemporary art with “body” as the keyword. The same theme as the exhibition at the Yokohama Museum of Art, which shows a variety of expressions created by a single human body, behavior as a group, and spiritual body, Let's dig deeper into the expressions that we create.

New performances ahead of the world! Junnosuke Tada "Choreograph"

“First, think about“ choreography ”in dance. Choreography, choreography, choreography, choreography, dance. The body to be born and the body to accept. And “choreography” and “directing”. Then, think about “choreography” in our society. With reference to the history of modern times and the history that followed, the history of Yokohama, especially the relationship between the West and Japan and the future. "

2015 performance "Macbeth"

olor: # 808080 "> 2015 performance" Macbeth "

One of the pleasures is that you can see the stage of young actors growing during the performance. “Macbeth”, which was held last year's performance, was very well received by showing off the powerful and innovative “Macbeth” under the limited conditions and making the most of space and body.

It seems that the number of audiences increased as the audience continued, and the performance was so popular that it was impossible to enter the venue on the final day.

This "Hamlet" is a masterpiece of Shakespeare like "Macbeth", and is a masterpiece of Shakespeare's masterpiece that represents the Renaissance drama.

“Who are you!” The up-and-coming young actors perform with enthusiasm and a sense of speed as the protagonist worries about the way the hero lives, worries about himself in a fragile world, and heads towards madness. The Feel the enthusiasm of the actors with your skin on the stage where the spirit is expelled.

About TPAM

It is the only international performing arts platform in Japan that is held in three programs: “Performance Program”, “Personal Exchange Program”, and “Open Call Program”. The number of participants at last year's event was 292 people from 40 countries and regions, and 424 people from Japan, making it one of the world's leading performing arts events. Professionals are basically participating, but general participation is also possible for most programs. It was possible to enjoy with a reasonable admission fee, and the previous visitors were 18,773.

A performance program where you can experience the performing arts of Asia and the world

The performance program includes 13 works / projects that embody the latest trends in performing arts in Asia and the world.

For example, “Apichatpong Weerasethakul“ Fever Room ””, this TPAM premiere in Japan!

Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Thailand) has won numerous film awards, including the Palme d'Or award at the Cannes Film Festival. As a Thai genius filmmaker and artist, last year there was a lot of screenings and exhibitions in Japan such as “Bunmi Uncle's Forest”. I was sent a hot look by a person related to the art.

“Fever Room” is the first stage work that Apichatpong worked on. As a completely new theater experience that goes beyond the framework of movies and theatrical performances, works that have received high acclaim at festivals around the world will be performed for the first time in Japan!

Appreciation programs and open recruitment programs are also available

The “exchange program” for information exchange and networking between domestic and foreign performing arts professionals can be attended by ordinary customers at symposiums and talk sessions, excluding business talks and negotiations. You can also watch the public recruitment program “TPAM Fringe”, which is an opportunity for new artists to gain international recognition. It is also very popular every year as an opportunity for stage fans to discover new talents and works.

There are also many other performances and events during the period!

Therefore, we asked the TPAM administration office for recommended performances.

The dance work “BALABALA” (https://www.tpam.or.jp/2017/?program=balabala ) choreographed by Eco Spyrant (Indonesia) is the third Asian international joint production by TPAM.

Eco-spyrant, who has worked as a choreographer / dancer in the mainstream, including Madonna's show, reinterprets traditional dances in the remote island of Gyro in East Indonesia with five local young female dancers from a modern perspective. A refreshing performance that transcends gender and cultural barriers. Under 18 years of age can be viewed for free!
