He will surely make you laugh!!

Nino Costrini from Argentina has a lot of fan here in Shizuoka. You will find out why he is so popular by watching his show! He will take you to a different world soon after the show begins and his unique character is shown everywhere in his performance. He invites more than one audience to the stage and I sometimes question, "Haven't they really talked beforehand?" That's how much they perform well. Nino has a great skill to make the audience a great performer. The audience really love Nino, so his stage is the one that Nino and the audience make together.
Do you know that his wife is coming to Daidogei with him as a preformer!? Mina Clown is his wife! They help each other behind the stage and I can see that they work together perfectly. They acutally have two daughters. One is eight years old and one is three and half. I will never forget the smile on his face when he talked about his daughters.
If you have seen his show, you must know that he uses famous Japanese old song of Hikaru Genji. I asked him how he knew about the song. He wanted to use a song about love and when he asked his Japanese friend, he gave him this song. Nino continues to use this song in every performance he does here in Shizuoka from the beginning.
Nino really enjoys performing here because Japanese audience is so polite and no one makes noise while he performs. He thinks Japanese have wonderful hearts.
You can watch his show as many times as you want because he will never make you bored. But just be prepared that you might laugh too hard!! (NARU)

Speaking of Europian cool soldiers, we Japanese visualize impassive soldiers in Buckingham Paalace, Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano, Syntagma Square, etc.
But these four are a bit different.
Amusing friendly soldiers from a distance, good looking guys in front of your eyes...
...Danger! Please, keep away!
The producer of this world cup found them in France and invited them for the special project of clowns.

The boss Astor, friendly Hector, good singer Salvador, and naughty drummer Trevor came from Belgium to Japan for the first time.
They seemed to be excited about everything they found in Shizuoka.
Especially, the size of apples knocked down them.
Apples are around 200 g in Europe, while in Japan they are around 300 g.
Please eat a lot and enjoy!

A man and a mouse chat, chat and chat very merrily.
Their conversation makes us laugh and happy, though we cannot understand the content of their conversations completely.

Their debut in Japan at the preview show made huge amount of chuckles.
The following morning, a lot of childish giggles surrounded them.
A man is Willer, a Swiss man born in Spain. His cute partner is Joselito, a Mexican mouse made in the States.
Six years ago, Willer fell in love with Joselito's attractive face,
then Willer changed his partner from a bird to a mouse, and now Joselito chats like a bird.

Everyone should be astonished at that they have studied Japanese only for a month.
Perhaps they are very good at mastering a new languages, as they grew up in multilingual situation. I feel a tinge of envy...
However, their performance teaches us the importance of feeling. Don't think! feel!
Shall we overcome the linguistic barrier with their universal performance?

Last years champion has yet to entrance the crowed again. HYDRAGON are a group formed four years ago but the two of them have known each other for more than thirty years. They have been to many countries such as Italy, Belguim, Spain, South Korea and so on but they say their tour has just begun.

They peform brave aerial acts high in the air along the sound of the accordion. With no harness or any soft landing on the ground, it is thrilling to watch them.They make even the most difficult move look easy and simple with a smile upon their face.

They enjoyed sharing the same emotions as the crowed and are happy to be here for the third time. Everyone should watch and experience the wonder of HYDRAGON in the air. It doesn't matter how old you are or if you understand French, HYDRAGON will awe you just the same!

This year, 3 face painters have come from around the world to Daidogei! They are Canadians Lucy and Angela as well as the British Liz.

Pioneer of Daidogei face painting and 30 year veteran and, winner of the world 2009 face painting and 2010 body painting champion, Lucy is back for her 15th year! 18 and broke during a trip through Europe, a friend's crayons and a local festival provided her with the first of her many face painting sessions.

Lucy Brouillard

As for Liz, she has been doing face painting for 16 years. Invited to the event by her friend Lucy, they have now appeared together 9 times. According to her, she uses a very different, brighter, color palette and many butterflies when she works in Japan than in any other country. Her favorite thing however, is when she can create an image to match kimono.

And finally, in her Daidogei debut, is Angela. A face painter for 7 years, she found herself drawn to face painting when searching for makeup that works well on children in her theater work. Also invited to the event by Lucy, she is extremely excited and finds herself very lucky to be here in Shizuoka. Her specialty, is scary things or "boyish" images.

Sisters Riko, Kana and Kano enjoying Angela's work

She says "We call ourselves the dream team," when speaking of the three of them who now reside in Canada.

As for your own design, just leave it to them and enjoy your orginal face painting!

These talented women can be found in the same location every day this weekend. Even on the first day, their work is already popular! Why don't you go check them out and become the inspiration for these women's next work of art? <MII>

Wait. That's the stage!? Surprised voices could be heard waiting for the performance to begin.




This year marks Bencha's 5th appearance at Daidogei. The performance group learned about the event after receiving an invitation from Daidogei, but have continued to appear because of the kind and friendly people.

While Bencha Theater is a 4 person group, two of their best aerial performers appeared this year. Descending from the roof, the two proceeded to perform a vertical tango-like dance expressing the "langauge of love."



Suspended from the roof, they captivate their audience as they move, giving the dancers the feeling of weightlessness, like they are moon walking and moving in slow motion. The two performed not only in midair, but also on the ground, making use of their gymnastic and acrobatic backgrounds.

These two were introduced to aerial dancing while attending a workshop and, since then, have worked in tandem with their troup to create a performance style that includes all specializations and is unique to the Bencha Theater group."Of course, we loved to fly once we tried (it)." Performer Sarah Kooij said of their background in aerial dance.

As for their message to the audience, "Just enjoy it," she says. <MII>

More than 2000 audience got together to watch the preview show in GRANSHIP.

The preview show of 25th DAIDOGEI World Cup in Shizuoka was held in Shizuoka Covension & Arts Center "GRANSHIP".
It's located halfway between downtown Shizuoka and downtown Shimizu.
Speaking of GRANSHIP, we Shizuoka citizen enjoy various kinds of arts, not only music concerts but also Japanese traditional theatrical arts (Noh, Kabuki, Bunraku, etc..) and modern performing arts in the medium hall called Earth (大地 Daichi). Sometimes, we use its enormous mail hall called Ocean (海 Umi) for special big events. As the preview show was one of the special ocacasions, so many people seemed to be excited to enter into the Ocean. They eagerly waited for a long time in such cold weather.


Some rushed over to the show after work and some took a day off for the show.
This year, Shizuoka city made advertising posters which recommend us to take a paid vacation to enjoy DAIDOGEI as a part of a work-life balance propulsion project.
