Project Meeting - "Creativity of the Office #6"

2017-1-19 (Thu) 19:00 - 21:00

The theatre troupe Ishinha has build enormous outdoor stages and held performances in countries all over the world expressed in their unique speaking, story telling, and musical style. Their unique style called "Janjan Opera" and the inimitable space created by the "food stall villages" that appear during their performances have captured the hearts of many people. For Part 6 of "Creativity of the Office," we've invited SHIMIZU Tsubasa, who is involved with production at Ishinha, to speak with us. We'll hear about the difficulties and ingenuity involved with performances that are held at different places and in different circumstances each time, the unique process in which staff members and performers cooperate in everything from building the stage to preparing meals, and the role of the office that supports it all.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. 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.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
