Labo Café's Theater -- a PLAT-formance-style way of making comedy skits

2013-9-21 (Sat) 2:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

PLAT-formance is a comedy trio consisting of a playwrite and two performers. They make comedy skits by developing what the playwrite writes. In this café, they will talk about how to make comedy skits and a theater-trope-style method of making comedy skits, which is different from ordinary entertainers.

In the second half of the cafe, they will make a comedy skit with participants using a textbook. Why don't you join us in making a comedy skit? The organizers look forward to seeing many in attendance.

Guests: ANDO Riki (PLAT-formance), YOSHIDA Takashi (PLAT-formance)

Cafe master: NAKATANI Kazuyo, Specially Appointed Researcher,  CSCD, Osaka University

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse on the 1st basement of the Naniwabashi Station was set up as the Art Area B1 at the time of opening of the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line on October 19, 2008. Starting then, the project to make the station a center of artistic communication commenced.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1 is the "Lab Café," designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. The Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.
