Profile(en)
Barbara Murata is one of Japan’s top mime artists. She mixes theatre, dance, puppetry, mask and object manipulation to
create a new mime world. She has performed worldwide both on the streets and in theatres. Murata’s unique style includes the dramatic, the romantic, and the comicーall illustrated through her sense of rhythm and movement. Her character’s charm is honest and sincere: a woman coming and going between day and night, yin and yang, inside and outside. Murata is also a member of the performing arts company, Yubiwa
Hotel.

Doppelgänger is a mixed-media performance using mime, dance, masks, and puppetry. Murata describes our other selves and our deepest thoughts, and her show also explores the extremes of love, hate, solitude, and griefーwhich we all know but keep to ourselves in our own secret world where the fire of passion never dies. Doppelgänger is pure physical theatre alternating between Eros and Thanatos, Life and Death, Yin and Yang, Chaos and Calm, Noise and Silence… those moments of solitude where an inner voice asks, “What do I want? Where am I going? Who am I? How will I live?”

Barbara Murata est une mime parmi les plus reconnues au Japon. Elle mélange théâtre, danse, marionnettes, masques et la manipulation d’objets afin de créer un nouveau monde du mime. Elle a présenté ses spectacles de par le monde dans un contexte de rue ainsi qu’en salle. Le travail unique de Barbara Murata se base sur un style dramatique, sur le romantisme et sur la comédie. Il est illustré par un sens du rythme et du mouvement. Imbue de charme honnête et sincère, Barbara est une femme qui va et vient entre jour et nuit, entre Yin et Yang, intérieur et extérieur. Elle est membre de la compagnie de théâtre, Yubiwa Hotel.

“Doppelgänger” est un spectacle multimédia qui inclut mime, danse, masques et marionnettes. “Doppelgänger” décrit notre autre moi, l’esprit profond en nous et explore les états extrêmes de l’amour, de la haine, de la solitude et du chagrin; émotions communes à tous mais cachées dans le monde secret de l’individu, là où le feu de la passion ne s’éteint jamais. Théâtre physique pur qui oscille entre Éros et Thanatos, entre la vie et la mort, entre le Yin et le Yang, le chaos, la tranquillité et le silence… en d’autres termes, ces moments de solitude quand notre voix intérieure nous demande: “Qu’est-ce que je veux? Où vais-je? Qui suis-je? Comment vais-je vivre?”

April 28: Nammy & Nazo

17855009_10154461599943321_199349388399417374_o.jpg

【三上ナミと謎カンパニー】 NammyNazo

運命の悪戯によるあの手この手の強烈な試練により人間不信に陥っていた昭和歌謡が好きな歌手の三上ナミと
全てが謎だが、なぜだかピアノが弾ける謎の地方公務員が出逢う。少し心がザワつく、けれどどこか癒されるへんてこな音楽が流れる。三上の心の傷は音という魂を吸い音楽になっていった。

そして、「この人は、人間じゃないから信頼できるかもしれない…!」そう思った三上は謎の地方公務員と組むことを改めて決意。
謎の地方公務員は「ヌーイ」と一言。

“オペラ仕立てのレトロでシュール、そしてクラシカルな世界を貴方に!”をスローガンに掲げ
唄とピアニカ担当の三上ナミとピアニスト謎の地方公務員が中心となって織り成す楽団。

IT’S NOT POPS.
IT’S NOT JAZZ.
IT’S NAMMYNAZO.

三上ナミと謎の地方公務員率いる”謎カンパニー” (ドラム、ベース、ヴァイオリン)と共に哀愁漂うどこか懐かしい楽曲で、
下町情緒、エレジー、郷愁、クラシカルをテーマにオペラ仕立てのレトロでシュールな世界を展開。

On one fated evening, a young singer who loved the songs of the Show era met a mysterious, masked keyboardist who worked as a civil servant during the day. Little by little the music began to flow and touch people’s hearts. Sounds formed by the scars on Nammy’s heart emerged and formed music.

“This person cannot possibly be human, so I don’t think I should trust him….” thought Nammy about the mysterious civil servant but decided to join forces with him anyways.
The mysterious man responded, “Nui.”

NammyNazo is band that combines Nammy Mikami, vocalist and underground actress, and Nazo, the mysterious civil servant who performs drums, bass, and violin with Nazo Company. (In Japanese, Nazo means mystery.) Their stories of melancholy and delusion seem tailored for opera, but NammyNazo has a surreal, retro sound with classical notes reminiscent of the Showa era of Japan. Nammy Mikami is the lead vocalist and lyricist and she usually wears vintage clothes or kimono, adding to the band’s nostalgic feel.

It’s not pop.
It’s not jazz.
It’s NammyNazo.

Use all of your five senses to experience and enjoy the world of nostalgia for the old backstreets of Tokyo created by Nammy Mikami and Nazo Company as NammyNazo.

March 31: Tuna Mermaid

tuna

2016年デビューした、踊らないのにドラマティックなバーレスクダンサー。かつて宮廷風刺劇であったという17世紀のバーレスクを21世紀に再構築することを目指している。王様のいない現代に、風刺されるのは一体だれ?

今回ご披露するショーには『My Sweet Pillow』という名前が付いていますが、実はクラシックバレエの名作『コッペリア』への風刺作品です。このバレエの劇中の悪役は、人形と暮らし、人形の世話をし、人形を愛する村はずれの変わり者。大変気持ちの悪い人物として描かれています。しかし気持ち悪いことは悪ではないし、彼は彼のままで幸せになることもできたはず。『My Sweet Pillow』では、村はずれの変わり者をエプロン姿のピンナップガールに、お人形を二次元のイケメン抱き枕に置き換えて、ドラマティックな脱衣(Burlesque)を行います。愛の形に「普通」を求める全ての人への風刺(Burlesque)になっているといいなと思います。驚きのハッピーエンドをぜひ見にいらしてください。

クロッキーモデルとしては、たぷたぷの背中とお腹は描きごたえがあり、また足先と指先の所作はイラストレーションにうってつけです。

Tuna Mermaid made her debut as a non-dancing burlesque performer in 2016. Tuna Mermaid is a non-typical Japanese beauty who also works as a popular artist’s model with her curvaceous figure reminding one of Ruben’s nudes, Elvgren’s pin-up girls, and the characters in Japanese Shojo comics. Burlesque was a comedic performance or parody that often mocked the European imperial courts in the 17th century and is being revived in the 21st century. In an era without powerful kings and queens, who will be mocked?

On March 31, Tuna Mermaid will do her “My Sweet Pillow” routine, which is based on the classic ballet comedy, Coppelia. The villain in the original ballet is an oddball who lives on the edge of town with a mechanical doll, takes care of the doll, and loves the doll. Dr Coppelius is written as a despicable person, but things that feel awful are not bad. If he had lived the way he wanted to, he would have been happy. In “My Sweet Pillow”, the main character is a sexy but wacky woman who wears an apron and looks like a 1950s housewife ala Lucille Ball (who was also a pin-up model), and the doll is now a two-dimensional body pillow with the picture of a hot guy on it. As the show progresses, she dramatically changes her appearance for her “man” in a desperate attempt to appeal to him. Through such forms of love, all people seek to be ‘normal’. The surprise happy ending has to be seen to be believed!
