Thank you for coming to the collaboration between the art of dancing by Koji Mizuta and the art of image creation by SatoruYoshioka. The collaboration named “Camera Obscura” is Volume 32 of The Museum of Art, Kochi performance series, and it is the third performance of “Creation 05” that was launched this year.

“Creation 05”, which will be followed by 06, 07, 08 from next year, is designed to show the eagerness of the Museum Hall toward the promotion of the performing arts. The first performance was a new project of the drama group “Pocarine Reminiscence Troop” led by Yasu Myojin who is a Kochi-born playwright and director. It was presented in Tokyo and Kochi. We asked the Shizuoka Performing Arts Center for cooperation to create the second performance. Makoto Nakashima who belongs to the center's production department stayed in Kochi for about three months to produce Henrik Ibsen's HEDDA GABLER with local theater people. The second performance was presented in the courtyard of this museum and at Toga village in Toyama Prefecture which is famous for the Toga Drama Festival. It received a favorable review in both of these venues.

This is the third performance. This is a collaborative performance by Koji Mizuta, Satoru Yoshioka and Jun Yamaguchi. Mr. Mizuta is a native of Kochi and the first Japanese staff member of Merce Cunningham Dance Company headquartered in New York. Mr. Satoru Yoshioka is also a native of Kochi. He made his debut as a fine art photographer in Europe, and he is currently active in the U.S. Today is the premier performance in this series produced and originated by The Museum of Art, Kochi as well as the commemoration of triumphant return of the two natives to Kochi. Staff members taking charge of acoustic and lighting affairs are mostly Kochi-born professionals. This means that the third performance is genuinely a product of Kochi Prefecture. We sincerely hope that the performance presented in the homeland will make the two professionals more active and energetic in the internationa arena.
