"During the Bon festival night of love, a flint glows brightly. "In the distance," a young man with a big heart thinks of his bride. Full of hope, clutching a flint in his hand, he makes a wish."
Immerse yourself in this revisited version of Lewis Caroll's tale. In Japan, the troupe plays Alice in Wonderland as a musical. Specifically for Japan Expo Youth Theatre Japan presents a new adaptation of the show with a new staging inspired by traditional Japanese styles.
The show is 100% non-verbal. The story is told through body language, facial expressions, and an original soundtrack. Let yourself be carried away by the colorful and shining world that unfolds on stage.
The project is currently undergoing auditions for which more than 300 people have applied. Sixty of them will be selected to represent the play on the Ichigo stage at Japan Expo.
Photocall sessions will take place after the performances, during which you can take a picture with the artists.
