(Hanoi) Co-production by Japan and Vietnam Non- Verbal performance “WITHOUT SIGNAL!” [TICKETS ARE DISTRIBUTED OUT]

The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam proudly presents non-verbal performance “WITHOUT SIGNAL!” directed by Mr. Shuji Onodera.

Mr. Onodera founded “Company Derashinera” on 2006. Their performance is based on technics of mime. The performance is much more like theatrical work than dance. The mime movement of their dance makes something invisible to visible. They attract audience by all their own style. On 2016, they performed first time in Vietnam.

On September 2017, “WITHOUT SIGNAL!” was performed at Kanagawa Art Theater in Yokohama, Japan after workshops and rehearsals wwith 4 Japanese and 4 Vietnamese performers.Untitled

He was inspired by the scene on the street in Vietnam that cars, motobikes and pedestrians go smoothly even in the heavy crowded crossroad. He felt that they seem to move freely at a glance. However, seeing carefully, he thought people might have some kind of discipline to keep of fill the space, disstance between others and that balance run the crowd to the forward. Mr. Onodera reflects such kind off impressions to the piece.

Year 2018, is 45th anniversary year of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam. On this occasion, we hope you to enjoy collaboration off 4 Vietnamese performers and 5 Japanese performers and directors.
