Various fantasy is never behind in this year too.
KAMIMARO has been performing as a magician
over the past 10 years.
He wants to express fantasy of a picture book in his stage.

By the way, do you know why his costume is only red?
Accroding to him, he represents the fantasy abstractly.
So you will find that he is one of the fantasy pursuer.

I thought he is a shy guy, however he wasn't.
He is very frank and surprisingly he likes ROCK'N ROLL!!

"Welcome To The Party"/MISS KURIKURI

She creates her own world in her performance, and invite audiences there by saying "Welcome to my party!"
She have worked in many circus campanies and peformed in some burlesque shows. She has various circus skills as silk performance, juggling and weel.

She attracts people with her charming smile and cheerful singing and dancing. Her costumes and backgroung music remind us of some retro movies. That is why the 1920s and the 1930s are her favorite era. She brings a lot of elements from these era into her show, as if music, costumes, accessories, and so on.

She already peformes despite she gave birth to a boy just 4 months ago. Let's look forword to see her humorous and happy show again!!
