Tour performance with snacks

This will be a unique theatre experience for participants to explore the Shizuoka Performing Arts Park with their eyes, ears, feet … and also their taste buds.

This tour performance is designed so audiences can enjoy nature and wholesome foods in Shizuoka based on the folklore tale “Kachi Kachi Yama”, which is popular across society despite actually being a cruel revenge story.

Shizuoka Performing Arts Park is on Mt. Udo, which has lots of picturesque spots such as the Nihondaira area where wild boar and raccoon dogs live. In this program, participants stroll around Mt. Udo and learn about the area while eating snacks.

This is the director ISHIGAMI Natsuki’s third work at SPAC following MISHIMA Yukio’s “Yoroboshi” in 2022 and TANIZAKI Junichiro’s “Otsuya no Koi” in 2023.

This time, she creates a tour performance along the lines of others she has done elsewhere, using the Shizuoka Performing Arts Park area as a stage from which participants pick up things found in nature to give them something different from their daily lives.
