Founded in January, 2016. We are making Music and Poetic Drama combining songs, body, and voice. That is a new possibility of theatrical art. In 2015, as Theatre X Music and Poetic Drama Laboratory, We performed “ORPHANS AND STARS” and “the end does not end” for the 100th anniversary project of the birth of Tadeusz Kantor at Theatre X, Tokyo. In 2016, collaborated with violin player Ayumi Paul from Berlin. In our project, there are various members, such as dancers, voice performers, singers, and musicians. In making process, those members regard commutation as important. Our communication processes are reflected in our pieces.
