In 2015, Music and Poetic Drama Laboratory performed a theatre music “the end does not end” in the 100th anniversary of birth of Tadeusz Kantor at Theatre X, Tokyo. In 2016, we performed this theatre music as a Eurasian Opera in Armenia (Caucasus project), Russia (Moscow meeting) with impromptu musicians and singer who sing traditional music of her own country.
In 2017, this theatre music altered differently by Jun Kawasaki’s new composition with chamber music. After premier we are going to perform it in Buryat Republic, Turkey, and Ukraine, and have performances in this September in Tokyo. Welcome to this premier and watch a moment in which new piece will be created.

We are singing collection of mythology in the 21th century based on modern Chinese novel that describes about life of minority, nomadic, and hunting race who lived in border between Russia China, two World Wars, Russian Revolution, establishment of People’s Republic of China, and customs such as language and shamanism that being lost. This theatre music is constructed by songs and unique chorus system, and based on many locality and life of minority groups. According to a certain kind point of view, it can connect to modern Latin American Arts such as García Marchez and could be called Magic realism of North East Asia.
There has been Silk Road on Eurasian Continent from ancient times. We will be Marebito (visitors from afarworld), going and making new ways. Encounters of the Far East music, Asian music, and European music are making new Eurasian ways.
