Gekidan Mikeneco: Began their activities in 2015 as students at Kyoto City University of Arts. The sense of discomfort that they feel is created into work dialogue systems, which they observe together with the audience. In addition to their theatrical works, they also present recitation plays and performance works using poetic texts. They are active mainly in Kyoto.
Yumu Kumada: Completed lacquer work at the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Kyoto City University of Arts. Using wood and other materials, she creates works about the relationship between phenomena created by nature and the humans who react to them and question their meaning.
