This is a totally different performance from the conventional form.The theater is the nature itself.The sceneries of the four seasons are changing,the weather is changing,so aoes the performance is changing to match up with the changeable nature.In this stage,only the half of the performance is created by man,and the other half is belonged to the mysterious nature.
If it were raining during the performance,you can put on the raincoat that we prepare for you,if you came here in the hot summer, you have to take the anti-mosquito spray with you,if there were flood,half of the auditorium probably could be under the water, and if there were thunderstorm,the performance could be ceased.This is our performance—a performance interacting with the nature.
