Toyooka Art Season 2016
Text, Direction: Laurent Colomb
“Kinosakinomatopee” is a voice theatre project by a French voice performer, playwright and director Laurent Colomb. The project is about the Japanese onomatopoeias and hot spring of Kinosaki, and it involves six actors from Seinendan and Murinkan.
“How do we understand the nature through onomatopoeias? Do the words of onomatopoeias protect us from disorders? Are we the only ones aware of the effect of onomatopoeias?” These questions will be answered through the performance, which uses Japanese and several other languages written in text.
Workshops that involve Colomb’s physical approach towards voice will be conducted for the local people of Kinosaki during his residence.
