Daiji Meguro / Yebisu Daikokuza
"Paradise and Hell with Yokai Show!!" Open Studio


The third version of “Yokai show!!” by a touring troupe Yebisu Daikokuza, led by Butoh dancer and choreographer Daiji Meguro. In 2018, the second version “Yokai show at the Yokai House!!” was created at KIAC and performed in two venues in Toyooka City. Subsequently, the performance has toured in Chugoku and Shikoku regions, and it was highly welcomed.

In this new creation of the popular series, Meguro will write, direct, performs and operate technical equipment all by himself. During the residency, in addition to the creation of movements of Yokai and rehearsals, he will construct the special stage and set and will program lights and sounds, with a view to participation in fringe programs of Toyooka Theater Festival in autumn and to organizing a tour in Japan.
