We’re Moving!!

Maybe you have already guessed it but… We’re moving!

First the sad news 😦

It’s been an amazing 2 and a half years at Studio IVVA in Harajuku, January 2014 – June 2017 but as Chaucer said, “There is an end to everything, to good things as well” It has been more than good at Studio IVVA it’s been fantastic, we have been so fortunate and happy to have been hosted by such gracious people. Thank you so much Yusuke and Masa for allowing all this magic to happen in your Harajuku studio!

Now the good news 🙂

We are returning to our roots in Shibuya! From September Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Tokyo will be hosted at The Guinguette by Moja on every 3rd Wednesday! This is a great place and it will be an honour to be included in their regular calendar of events which already is host to a lot of burlesque, pole dance, and musical events!

既にご存知の方もいらっしゃるでしょうが、今後の日程についてお伝えします。 まずは悲しいお知らせ。 2014年1月から2017年6月まで2年半、原宿Studio IVVAで素晴らしい時間を過ごしてきましたが、かのジェフリー・チョーサーも言っていたように「すべての物事には、よいことと同じように終わりがある」のです。Studio IVVAは晴れやか且つ華やかであり、あたたかいスタッフにも恵まれました。ユウスケさんとマサさんに謹んでお礼を申し上げます。 次に素敵なお知らせ。 また渋谷へ戻ることとなりました。9月からは毎月第3水曜日、The Guinguette by Mojaで開催します。バーレスク、ポールダンス、ライヴ等が行われている絢爛たる場所にDr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Tokyoも加わるのです。輝かしい皆さまとご一緒出来て、非常に誇らしく思います。 日時、場所ともに変更でご迷惑をおかけいたしますが、今後ともよろしくお願い申し上げます。

June 23: Barbara Murata

19059814_10154644285598321_1435453687019764760_n

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?”

�Profil (fr)
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.
