From There to Here
From Here to There
We Send Tengu Everywhere!*
In 2007 Osugi Musical Theatre put on an original musical called The Greedy Goblin III: Adventures on the Tengu Planet. People from all over the world contributed to and participated in our production. The Public Art Project began with our Space Tengu Costume Design Contest.
(Guidelines here. Winning costumes are here. )
In 2007 we sent two tengus around the globe. In 2008-09 the two of them and their souvenirs, diaries, photos, etc are on a touring exhibition of Komatsu elementary schools. In addition, two other little tengus are currently travelling the globe.
One is accompanying our friend Talie in her world wanderings. (she and tengu have been to: Antartica, New Zealand, Australia (Tasmania),USA (California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Alaska), Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Australia (Northern Territory, Western Australia), and currently back in New Zealand.
The other is on a cycling odyssey with Isabelle and Bruno, who he joined last fall in Noto, and they are now back in France.
-OMT has produced a picture card theatre version of our first Yokubari Tengu show. To share it around the world, we have had it translated into 18 languages so far. See them here!
