The new work by FUKAI PRODUCE-hagoromo, whose unique style comprises a series of musical scenes like a concept album, creating a weird and wonderful (myo) form of musical it calls a “myosical.” The synopsis is that a mysterious being enters into a performance by a theater company called “Japanese theater company Hagoromo.” In this original musical theater piece based on the concept of the theater company, details of creative activities and troupe members’everyday hardships as well as the fundamental theater motif of make-believe are skewered from a cosmic perspective through the character of a mysterious extraterrestrial being.
Designed for people inundated by mainstream content in entertainment-replete Tokyo, the intention was to balance humble details and grand themes, supporting sensitivity through a work that questions the true essence of things, and giving back the richness of arts and culture through a work that is original and unique.
