Established in 1995, Space GIGA Theatre Troupe has been working to inject new life into locations out-of-theatres in Japan. They have performed in public bathrooms, galleries, temple, forests, apartments and streets. The award-winning troupe is active not only in Fukuoka but in Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Their zany productions have included both adaptations of classic literature and original scripts. Their latest piece, ‘Aoitori Aoitori Aoi…’, directed by Erica Yamada, is based on a beloved children’s book ‘Bluebird’. Space GIGA often provoke their audience to think carefully about key issues and ‘Aoitori Aoitori Aoi…’ is no exception considering the search for happiness and the meaning of life. Space GIGA are as full of energy as they are of ideas so, even if your Japanese isn’t up to scratch, you are bound to be entertained. With only 30 seats per show (unreserved seating), we recommend booking tickets with date and time in advance.
