Traditional Japanese and European music meets silent movies, shadow puppetry, contemporary dance and metaphysical philosophy during a five-day series of events at one of Tokyo's premier classical music venues. The performers include Colored Monotone, a group that specialises in performing to silent movies, and butoh dancer Kim Itoh's company collaborating with Ensemble Muromachi, who play Baroque and traditional Japanese instruments. Ambitious stuff – and the Japanese title for the event series translates, appropriately, as 'Go for it!'
