pepepe club
pepepe club is a gathering of “Pe” folk striving to create new art for the Reiwa era. Centering on the three concepts of “Pe of Plaza,” “Pe of Live,” and “Pe of Playful,” the group focuses on the existence of both creators and audiences at the theater, creating works that take a fresh and critical look at the “see/be seen” relationship in existing theater.
