ノンバーバル劇 GEAR/ Non verbal show "GEAR"

ART COMPLEXギア事務局さんに"GEAR"に招待いただきましたので、6月中頃にうさぎスタッフで行ってきました。







We were invited for non verbal long run show "GEAR" in later June.  The theater is 3 stations away from us by subway, only about 15 mins to get there!

The show is very atractive and marvelus projection mapping are very well used all over the show.  It is very famous show in Japan as well as overseas visitors, and it was almost fully booked when we visited.  Surprisingly, a harf of audience is oveseas visitor!!!  Needless to say it is easy to understand the story when non verbal.  

The story has lots part of laughfing, applauding and crying.  Performers are well trained to move around in such a small hall.  They sometimes come to audience seats and include us in the show.  It is warth watching and non stop 90 minutes exciting show will become your great souvenir.

It seems they have so many acters and changes them every time, means the show changes a little bit in every show time.

Here we have very hot Kyoto Summer but how is watching it in a cooler hall.  We bet you enjoy this cool show and cool hall in Kyoto.  It's going to be great experience & chance!!
