E070: Fil de Cocon

posted May 14, 2018
Spirit-like creatures start to float as the burning summer sun sets and the night falls. They glide by on the ears of rice plants, sliding through the air right in front of the eyes of the audience. Unique circus performers including the world's best ropewalker and a horse actor/acrobat present a fantastic performance to "joruri" music amidst the primal landscapes of the region.
