Accompanied by impressive stage effects set up using techniques ranging from those used in Kabuki plays to the latest technologies, GEAR is bound to offer you a theatrical experience you will never forget!
Spectacular stage design
Winner of the 43rd Kisaku Itou Prize, the only stage design award in Japan, this realistic stage setting by Takahiro Shibata will rile up steam punk fans. In the center, there is a giant fan that could pull the audience seats in if it runs amok!
Incredible performances unfold one after another in this arena limited to 100 seats, on a stage so close you can almost touch it. Look out for the wonderful techniques of a world champion break dancer, an international gold medalist mime, a national record setting juggler, and a magician widely featured in the media.
Emotional, nonverbally woven stories
The performers in GEAR do not have lines, but instead show emotions through facial expressions and gestures. The characters are wonderfully acted in easy to understand ways, so even small children, non-Japanese and heart - of - hearing who don't understand Japanese language can enjoy it.
