Mesdames et Messieurs

Bring together a host of talented artists in the fields of jazz, folk, dance, art, videography and animation, ask them to collaborate for a performance at one of Tokyo's most popular clubs, and the outcome is bound to make the audience go 'Wow'. Creative project producer Pod Inc and performance art group Kirie are behind this unique event that sees decorated American jazz singer Harvey Thompson (now based in Japan) on stage along with other talented musicians, including Neo Trad, masters of the didgeridoo and traditional Japanese folk instruments the koto and shakuhachi. Dancers will perform with bodies painted by Kirie artists, who use techniques of the Japanese craft yuzen to create beautiful images on the dancers' bare skin. Videographer Takahiro Hayakawa, meanwhile, will capture the entire show, using his combination of hand-drawn animation and digital technology to produce an artistic film of the organic movement between the players on stage.
