Story Creation Workshop vol.2 / 物語を探るワークショップ vol.2

We did the workshop "Story Creation Workshop: vol.2 : Object - Extra edition : Strolling YaNeSen neighborhood" in March 14, 2017. This time, participants brought objects that they like to "introduce" to the city scape. While we strolled along the small alleys in YaNeSen neighborhood in Tokyo, participants' daily objects encountered the objects hidden in the city scape and architectural details of the city. Through the meetings of the objects and city, small stories were born. Through the objects, the city revealed different face. 

This workshop series continues! Stay tuned for the next one...! (posted by sachiyo)

2017年3月14日に、<物語>を探るワークショップ<オブジェ篇>の番外篇ー谷根千・街歩き篇を開催しました。今回は「街と出会わせたいオブジェ」を持参した参加者と一緒に、まだちょっと肌寒い春の街へ出発! 見慣れた・見逃していた街のいろんなディテイルや街中の<もの>たちと参加者の持ち寄った<もの>とがそっと出会い、小さな物語がそこここで生まれ、街の隠れた顔が見えてきました。

この「物語を探る」ワークショップ・シリーズはまだまだ続きます。次回もお楽しみに。。。(投稿 by サチヨ)


The Jim Henson Foundation 2017 Grant / ジム・ヘンソン財団2017年度助成

We are so proud to announce that our project Everything Starts from a Dot is a part of The Jim Henson Foundation 2017 grant recipients among amazing artists!


Sesame Street was broadcasted in Japan in English (without subtitles) when Sachiyo was small, and it was her first entrance to the world of wonder, guided by Muppets! She is so glad to receive this "present" from Jim Henson, and is ready to explore more the world of puppetry, objects and beyond.

Our lab member "dot" is also so excited that it can't wait to explore more of itself this year :-)!!!

Story Creation Workshop vol.1 / 物語を探るワークショップ vol.1

 Story Creation Workshop is an on-going workshop series to explore "story" as an experiment field where creative expressions meet beyond the boarders of art genres such as literature, theatre, film and fine arts. We did the first workshop "Story Creation Workshop: vol.1 - Object" at the Studio Brick-One in Tokyo in December 10, 2016. Together with participants and many objects they brought, we explored the possibility of creating story from and through objects and objects manipulation. 

This workshop series continue. Each time we will focus on the different elements such as object, space, sound, body, light, language and media to explore the possibility of alternative story design. Stay tuned for the next workshop...! (posted by sachiyo)



このワークショップ・シリーズでは毎回オブジェ、空間、音、身体、言葉、メディア等の表現要素に注目しながら、複合的な物語デザインの可能性を探っていきます。次回もお楽しみに。。。(投稿 by サチヨ)
