the last day, after performance...

 

our staff

Ms. Namiyo Kubo, artist painter, participated in the performance "Toukasetsu" as a fashion model.
After the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11 2011, she goes to a small town of Iwate many times to support local children. She heals the wound of the heart of children by letting them draw a picture.
After the performance, she had a new idea: Let children design the original clothing, draw it on the paper, and hold a Fashion Show !
The show came to the end enjoying a favorable reception and a repeat performance is planned soon.

messages from audience

I was enchanted by theater, fashion show and dance performance on stage with such a moving story.
When MOE (name of heroine) appeared from the front door, wearing her wedding dress, I wanted to applaud her !
I was so touched. (gentleman in 60's)

How will this story continue ? When is the next ? (8-year-old girl, when the performance just finished)

 

impressed by seeing such a harmony between Japanese culture and Occidental culture.

 

Beautiful Staging and touching story.

 

After performance, I was surprised the time has past so fast ! It was like a dream.

On last day, there was a lady who was shedding tears during the performance.
With a collaboration of many staff, an experimental performance of harmony between theater and fashion show, made by young artists, moved our audience. We are so pleased and proud of that.
