'As, soo desu ka' - All Aboard the Wangnin Train

Avant -garde Japanese Contemporary Dance Troupe to Perform in Bali December 1, 2006.

(11/27/2006) 

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can . . .

On Stage continues its program of international live performance of dance and music with a one-night presentation of Wangnin Bunmei at The Oriental Theatre in Legian at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 1, 2006.

Portrayed as "vibrant, crazy, offbeat and utterly unpredictable" - Wangnin Bunmei is one of Japan's leading contemporary dance troupes.

The dance performance scheduled for Bali will present a style of modern dance rarely seen locally that draws on the dancers' years of training in differing styles of dance ranging from jazz to Butoh. Choosing to either embrace or reject their training, the dancers provide an improvisational and spontaneous performance accompanied by musicians, similarly disinclined to be governed by any rules.

Truth in Advertising

Frankly, it's impossible to predict what the audience might expect in the Bali performance. Be certain that you're in store for a fresh and different performance, promising to be both lighthearted and joyous, as the dancers take their audience aboard the Wangnin Bunmei or Wangnin Train.

Be warned and read the conditions of carriage on your tickets: The Wangnin Train is not a real train. Only the people who believe in it can ride on it and its destination is in another world. Because nobody really ever returns from a journey on this train; nobody really knows where it goes!

All Aboard!

An excellent introduction to Japanese dance and culture on several levels, the program is considered suitable for all ages, celebrating spontaneity on stage.

This train departs at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 1, 2006 at The Oriental Theatre, just off Jalan Nakula in Legian.

Presented by On Stage

The single evening's performance of Wangnin Bunmei is presented by On Stage - a Bali-based organization that endeavors to celebrate the diversity of the universal human spirit via the regular cultural events in the form of dance, theatre, film and art exhibitions.
