Labo Café's Philosophy Seminar -- Reading poems

2013-10-11 (Fri) 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

A poem is like a "Kyomachiya" [traditional wooden town house in Kyoto]. Machiya are made of wood and have narrow street frontage, but they stretch back deep into the city block, so it can take some time to get used to living in one. So how about remodeling the entrance, making it spacious? Similarly, reading or reciting poems aloud may be a first step to getting familiar with poetry.

This vocal workshop is for you to use your voice about everyday things, things near at hand. Anyone is welcome. Please feel very welcome to drop by.

Guest: Chori, poet
Cafe master: NAKATANI Kazuyo, Specially Appointed Researcher, CSCD, Osaka University
In cooperation with: NPO Fringe Theater Project

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.
