First of its kind in Japan, GEAR is a unique non-verbal performance that stimulates your five senses with a moving story set in the future. Accompanied by impressive stage effects set up using techniques ranging from those used in Kabuki plays to the latest technologies, GEAR is bound to offer you a theatrical experience you will never forget!
“The miraculous heartwarming and moving rebirth.”
In the wastelands of the future,
personified robots (Roboroids) continue to work in a former toy factory.
And there appeared a doll that was once manufactured by the factory, ”Doll.”
Through the slow cmprehension and adaptation of the environment around them,
Roboroids and Doll are able to obtain “curiosity” and “playfulness”,
Bringing them closer to human beings.
Winner of the “43rd Kisaku Itou Prize”, the only stage design award in Japan, this realistic stage setting by Takahiro Shibata will rile up steam punk fans. In the center, there is a giant fan that could pull the audience seats in if it runs amok!
Incredible performances unfold one after another in this arena limited to 100 seats, on a stage so close you can almost touch it. Look out for the wonderful techniques of a world champion break dancer, an international gold medalist mime, a national record setting juggler, and a magician widely featured in the media.
Don’t miss the production using the latest technology such as “production mapping”, which involves projecting CG images created to fit with buildings and other 3D objects; lasers with up to 16 million colors, and LED dresses with colors easily changed by remote control.
The performers in “Gia” do not have lines, but instead show emotions through facial expressions and gestures. The characters are wonderfully acted in easy to understand ways, so even small children and foreigners who don’t understand Japanese can enjoy it.
