What we do

Roudoku to violin no Live session

  • Organization : Monogatari Group☆Polan no Kai
  • Section : None
  • Type of Grant Program : Single


A live session will be held with Monogatari Group☆Polan no Kai, which disseminates fairy tales by Kenji Miyazawa on the theme of “living,” and blind violinist Takaaki Shirai. As a preventive measure against the spread of coronavirus, the audience seats and the stage will be separated by a plastic curtain and subtitles will be projected onto a scrim. “The Nighthawk Star” will feature a violin performance with new music by Takaaki Shirai, and a solo narrative by Kaori Saiki. Four pieces of poetry from Miyazawa’s “mental sketch” “An Asura in Spring” express the concept of the work in animated subtitles. There will be an open audio guide to the stage set, costumes, performers, the work, etc.
