Labo Café / Theatre Café -- "How to make 21 facial expressions"

2014-7-21 (Mon) 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Actors on a theater stage speak, without saying any lines, with facial expressions. A dancer on a stage paints, not only with body movement, but with facial expressions.

For this Theater Café our guest is a Pantomime Performer, [a maker of] silent [verbal] expressions. He will show us how to make and how to show a variety of facial expressions, and how, by doing so, one can experience "expressions showing expressions" [facial expressions communicating verbal expressions].

Guest: OHKUMA Ryutaro, Director, Theater Troupe Ichigekiya; Script writer, Producer, Actor, Choreographer

Café Master: NAKATANI Kazuo, Specially Appointed Researcher, CSCD

Jointly sponsored by: 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.
