Quirky Japanese performance group SIRO-A make magic with light, sound and breathtaking choreography. Following their triumphant stint in London earlier this year, we are delighted to confirm that they will bringing their unique act to HYPER JAPAN 2013!
So who are these mysterious masked men? Formed in 2002, this technodelic performance troupe of 6 has wowed audiences in Japan and casually swept its way across the world, earning the prestigious Spirit of Fringe Award at 2011’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and making a name for themselves as Japan’s answer to the Blue Man Group.
Whilst we can understand the Blue Man Group comparison, SIRO-A is a unique experience in itself and offers a vibrant and futuristic fusion of pulsating electronic music and breathtaking laser segments, incredible optical illusions and precisely timed performance routines combined with advanced projection technology. The pace of each routine is varied and as well as the controlled chaos there are some beautifully peaceful moments, among them a few stand-out minutes where everything slows down and the performers stand in twinkling LED light suits.
These guys really do need to be seen to be believed. No amount of verbal description could possibly do the level of skill and intricacy in their performance justice. Nor could it ever truly express what SIRO-A is all about. You’ll just have to come to HYPER JAPAN and experience them for yourself!
