Is this dance or theater?
The problem works of shock gather in Akita!
Renana Raz "WART" / DIRAKUDAKAN "Crime and Punishment" / Kedagoroh "sky"
Feature "Dance and theater boundarie line"
This year's "ODORU-AKITA" vol.5 will be held on the theme of "Dance and theater boundarie line".
The "Crime and Punishment" of Akaji Maro and DAIRAKUDAKN, which shocked the world at home and abroad by staging the magnificent world of Dostoevsky, will be reperformed for the first time in the Akita with the cooperation of the New National Theatre.
On the other have, it is Renana Raz who enters Akita with "WART" from Israel.
The title WART is a coined word combining WAR (war) and ART (art). As the air raid alert rings and the Scud missiles fly, She still question war and art through the innocently playful children.
Last year, Reiko Shimoshima danced in her solo, "The monkey with a diaper" when first participated in "ODORU-AKITA".
She will re-appeared in "ODORU-AKITA" in the group dance work "sky" by her company "Kedagoro". Going a step further from the Aum Shinritical spirit world mentioned in the previous work, this time, we will challenge the world of "group collective madness" of "Allied Red Military Affairs".
