The Hatter’s Tea Party
In the deep forest, the Hatter’s tea party is being held.
The Hatter has been impatiently waiting for guests to arrive. The Cheshire Cat and the March Hare are helping him at the party. Then, strange guests start to show up one after another…
About This Livestream Performance
We present performances that both adults and children can enjoy during a long holiday called the Golden Week Holidays in Japan every year (the “week” starts on April 29 and lasts a week to 10 days). Many people come to see this annual performance. But we cannot do it in the same way as usual this year because of the current situation. We believe that theatre is something that should be experienced in a live setting at a theatre. However, if we stuck with this idea, we would have to give up performing for a while. Then we came up with an idea: live-streaming of our performance for free! Even though we all live in different places, we can connect at the same time by sharing the same moment, which is our theatrical approach. At the end of the performance, let’s have a tea party and belt out a song together.
