CD  Eurasian Poetic Drama  2022

Eurasian Poetic Drama-Jun Kawasaki 

 

The voice of the folklore goes beyond from tradition. It revived as the future folk songs in our life and art. This music is to listen deeply the heartbeat from invisible ground and water veins of music. The music was created by tracing the ancient layers of traditional music and folklores. It may be similar to Latin American Magic Realism literature. The music born from the collaboration between Eurasian and Japanese artists is a further evolution.

We are making Music and Poetic Drama — new

kind of theatre music combining songs, body, and voice — directed and composed by Jun Kawasaki. Since 2016, we have had collaborative performances with various artists from Armenia, Russia, Buryatia, Turkey, and Ukraine. Based on traditional arts and folklore from all over the world including Japan, we invent and use our unique choral system without relying on any ethnic or religious or classic music. The theatre music is said to be ‘Asian Magic Realism’ relating to creations of Latin American artist Gabriel García Márquez or Spanish poet Federico García Lorca and so on.
