Live performance (15 minutes on each day of the event)

The live performance and workshop will be held from 15:00 to 17:00. Details will be announced on the day at the venue.

“Mudda” Project
“Mudda” (from the Japanese word “muda” meaning futile) refers to something that might seem pointless at first glance but which is actually very important for you or somebody. In this participatory performance, artist Emi Tomozuka (known as “Chori”) swaps dialogue with the audience on the theme of “Mudda” things around us. Round the event off with a photo of yourself decked out in glittering aluminium foil with the help of a photographer and designer.

Participating performers: Tengyo Kura (as photographer) / Kentaro Onishi (as designer).
In collaboration with Yanaka no okatte (General Incorporated Association) / Japan Aluminium Association / UACJ Foil Corporation

Workshop (15 — 30 minutes long)

Visitors may join until 19:00 on the first day of the event and 15:00 on the second.

Please make your way directly to the venue.

Artist : Emi Tomozuka
