Mr. Cook in a Sulky Mood

Gokigen no warui kokku-san

Noriko Matsui / 12 sheets

This work makes deliberate use of the motion of sliding out sheets. As the audience calls “Look over here!” to Mr. Cook, who has turned his back in irritation at things around him, he turns and begins to cook something of his own, which delights everybody. The joy of eating candy all together becomes fused with the joy of living life just as we are, producing a deep sense of kyokan.

A Song for Pippo

A Song for Pippo

Hi-raita, hi-raita

Noriko Matsui / 12 sheets

As audience members sing a phrase in nursery-rhyme style with the performer, a fairy’s wish to fly through the sky is granted little by little. Buoyed by the chanting of the audience, Pippo, the flower fairy, takes courage and holds fast to her dream; before she knows it, she flies, with a joy that spreads to the audience through kyokan. The experience resonates with each viewer thanks to the fresh approach of this audience-participation kamishibai.
