Imaike Project is a group of composers and performers comprising Toshihiro Imamura and Moe Ikeda. With a focus on the body and an emphasis on the live experience, it continues its endeavors to rethink the meaning of music. It has held performances since 2014 in Tokyo and Nagoya. Aspiring to transcend disciplines and borders, it commissions work not only from composers but also contemporary dancers and playwrights, and its ambitious activities encompass collaborations with dancers and actors.
A kyogen performer of the Okura School, Sennojo Shigeyama was born in 1983 and trained under his father Akira Shigeyama and his grandfather Sennojo Shigeyama II. He wrote and directed the comedy sketch performance Hyakumanben and also regularly holds Marikoji, a series of performances of new kyogen plays that aspires to create a body of works that will be the classics of the future, a hundred years from now. In addition to bilingual kyogen, he also directs opera and acts in contemporary theatre. In December, he assumed the stage name Sennojo Shigeyama III.
Alongside her work in theatre, Mijika Nagai works widely as a “theatre model,” appearing in magazines, stage productions, variety shows, TV dramas, movies, and more. Her credits include the TV dramas Kakegurui Twin, Can’t Write!?, and Your Home Is My Business? 2nd Attack, the film The Girl I Like, and the stage productions Goodbye and Teru-kun, kamitteru. She is also a popular writer and essayist.
