Setagaya-Silk and Teater Sesam
"The mysterious shadow"
Toyooka Art Season 2017
Lost in a forest, a boy encounters a mysterious shadow.
What could it be...?
Children and adults are all welcome
To get lost in a wonderland of puppets and shadow play!
Setagaya-Silk is a theatrical company known for using not only words, but also their unique physical expression in their performances. Teater Sesam is a Gothenburg, Sweden-based theater company specialized in plays for children. The two companies will be staying at Kinosaki International Arts Center for two weeks to create a piece of work that both children and adults can enjoy.
Using puppetry and shadow play, they aim to create a work that overcomes the barrier of language and culture based on the theme of love and all its different forms: love for humanity, love for family, love for friends, or homosexuality for example.
