  • Synopsis
  • Cast and creatives
  • Venue details
Orchestrated by Tokyo-based artist and pop-idol Toco Nikaido, this is Japanese subculture conveyed in all its multi-coloured, cacophonous, frenetic glory.

Prepare to be equipped with a rain poncho and earplugs as twenty-five performers swarm the stage at breakneck speed, armed with an abundance of disposable props and subcultural references.

In a frenzied homage to otagei, (ritualised dancing and chanting by groups of fans) this riotous company hurtle towards a festival-like finale that invites everyone to take part.

In Japanese and English. Part of LIFT 2016

Ages 14+

Barbican [Off West End]

“Utterly joyous... A sense of genuine communal adventure... Dizzying ridiculousness, a frisson of total, glorious bafflement. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Simultaneously celebrates the aspirations of Japanese pop-idol culture and mercilessly sends up its vacant heart. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Loud, garish and at times barmy tribute to Japanese subculture that overloads the senses... Very carefully controlled chaos. ”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)
