The Kamigo Band: Songs for the Seasons. 2018
In the classroom of a former junior high school building, a stage is created in the shape of an old house. Hanging from the ceiling of this house is a cloth featuring snow, which is a symbol of this area. Automatic figurines in the shape of animals create the The Kamigo Band, as they perform songs created in collaboration with the local community. This artwork is a theatre-type work that creates a world of stories.
