The basis of our performance and creation of our acts are applied through the Method which incorporates the Japanese traditional performing arts, such as Kabuki and Noh.The Method is taken in our daily training for vocalization and physical conditioning.
We pursue uniqueness of theatrical performance and its performing effects, with a collaboration of the ancient Japanese physique and of the contemporary dance, which is different from screen images such as TV and movie. Our performance is mainly of the world tragedies, and extensively from Greek tragedy and Japanese traditional play to Modernity Play. We express strongly and acutely about the universal problems all mankind has faced, such as war, society, religion and race.
