COMPETITION

Share your experience of the theater in a graphic form.

We are accepting applications for participation in a graphic recording workshop of the dress rehearsal (the last rehearsal, which is performed onstage just like the main performances) of the theater production "Pratthana: A portrait of possession" on June 26th at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre.

After a workshop in advance at the school to understand the flow on the day of the dress rehearsal, we will then do the graphic recording of the actual theater performance during the dress rehearsal, and finally hold an exhibition of our works.

If you love painting pictures, then we eagerly await your application. Graphic recording first-timers are also welcome!

Message from the mentor

I believe that as yet there exists no method of recording or reproducing the experience of theater. The flow of the mood and emotions in the theater hall, the change in the interaction between the audience and the performers - these might be unknown elements that cannot be contained in any storage medium no matter what technology is used. At this workshop, we will attempt to use the method of graphic recording to document the experience of theater. Right now, I do not know yet what we will be able to record, but I feel like we will see the traces of this theater experience spread out before our eyes in a way never seen before. Let us engage in this recording experiment with our minds and souls.
