Members have realised what occured to Noriyuki KIguchi by try and error – which drew attention to this unique group with diverse elements including theatrical play, performance, architecture and contemporary art. Projects can be categorised into two streams – theatrical play or celebratory performance. Although their projects are in theatrical form, most of the participating members are not expert in theatrical play and always try to bring in non-theatrical methods and values. The boundaries between actors and audience are often burred when audience become performer and call someone’s chors as “performance” by putting them in the theatrical context.<
