Catch up his new version of the pantomime!/Koyo Yamamoto

His familiar pantomime "Charlie Yamamoto" is upgraded every year and new performance "Ashika-chan" is debuting in Shizuoka.
He said, "Here in Shizuoka, I always try to show the new entertainment. Because I can get an immediate audience reaction in Shizuoka. If Shizuoka people did not like it, it's would be not good everywhere in Japan."

They say they want to show not only acrobatic performance but also a performing art to audience.
YES, IT IS THE ART. That is a beautifull art in an open-air theater.

If you ask him something about this festival, you can get almost
any information you want.
He even informs you some additional old story.

He has a lot of treasured photos of Daidogei
which Daidogei fans would be eager to see.

There is a rumor that the artist who was taken photos by him
is recognized as an artist of first class...

Who is going to be taken a photo by him?
He is looking for a target and that might be you!?

Welcome to Pote's nongravity world!!/Pote

Wearing exotic clothes, Pote, whose hairstyle is like a pineapple
takes us to a nongravity world!

In his show, a crystal-clear stick goes up in the air,
and the silver hoops seem gravityless.
Also, his unique item named Bugen moves like a creature
and it looks so creepy. He smiled and said that
words like "creepy" is the best praise for him.

If he controls his favorite trick "contact balls",
it starts to spin around as if they are living.

"I want to perform without throwing things," he said.
He is may be a nongravity magician.
