For this work Spacenotblank expanded the creative methods it has engaged in thus far as a collective, using a work originally written by Ryo Ikeda and music produced by Masashi Nukata. The additional elements of a story-driven approach and musicality to a directorial style that specializes in the expression of actors’ identities meant there was more for Spacenotblank to share with its audience, offering a wide range of pointers and breadth to feed the audience’s imagination. This piece was implemented as an effective starting point to continue with the style and method of this production going forward and keep creating stage works encompassing new values.


Ayaka Ono & Akira Nakazawa / Spacenotblank
Spacenotblank was formed in 2012 as a performing arts collective comprising Ayaka Ono and Akira Nakazawa. Its work explores new values and approaches for the performing arts, developing fresh methods and ideas unconstrained by conventional notions. With an output based on natural communication and the interrelation between people and the environment, the group actively collaborates with different artists for each work.
