Odaiba Big Top,

+ Google Map

Montreal’s theatrical supertroupe Cirque du Soleil returns to Japan with Totem. Originally premiered in 2010, this successful touring show—which has so far attracted as many as four million spectators worldwide—stages the epic journey of humankind’s evolution across hundreds of millions of years, from its inception to the future, set to rhythms that draw upon Native American music, Spanish flamenco, and Indian music. Inspired by the many origin myths than run through human civilization, the show is performed by the company’s well-oiled, gravity-defying multinational acrobats. This extravagantly entertaining production, which won the New York Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience in 2013, incorporates cutting-edge technology such as projection mapping. Directed by Canada’s maverick theatrical talent Robert Lepage.

Once called Tokyo Performing Arts Market but now confusingly retitled Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama, TPAM is Japan’s biggest contemporary dance and theater exchange.

Among the companies to appear are venerable butoh dance group Dairakudakan, Thailand’s Pichet Klunchun, and the duo of Daniel Kok (Singapore) and Luke George (Melbourne). The latter will stage Bunny, a performance that utilizes macramé, sailors’ knots, Chinese knots, and rope bondage to weave together an “interactive experience of collectivity.”

Takashi Murakami: The 500 Arhats

February 15
|Recurring Event (See all)
Every day until March 6, 2016
Mori Art Museum,
6-10-1 Roppongi Japan
+ Google Map

Japan’s biggest artistic export of the 21st century (perhaps all time?) is the subject of a major exhibition at the newly renovated Mori in Roppongi. Takashi Murakami has many admirers—and detractors—but his domination of the Japanese art scene is an immutable fact. The 500 Arhats is Murakami’s reaction to the 3.11 disaster—a 100-meter-long Buddhist-flavored token of gratitude to Qatar, one of the first nations to offer help in the wake of the tsunami. The show also features a number of new creations including towering sculptures like The Birth Cry of the Universe, as well as more predictable anime-flavored canvasses.

From Joni Mitchell to Alanis Morissette, Canada is a fertile ground for producing seriously popular, high-quality female artists. One such artist is Diana Krall, the peerless jazz pianist and singstress hailing from Nanaimo, British Columbia. The de facto face of contemporary jazz since the late 1990s, Krall is famed for her sultry and sensual renderings of jazz standards. The Tokyo leg of her Wallflower World Tour—named after her latest album of pop cover songs—will be the multi-Grammy Awardwinner’s first appearance on this side of the world in well over a decade.
