We are trying to reach every aspect of human life e.g. fear, happiness, anger, dreams, stupidity etc. with no taboo nor limits. Most of our stories are set in a fantasy & surreal world and we use a lot of black humours. Our works include a series of plays which is showed in Japanese style old house with only 20 seats, a series of strange musicals (such as samurai- musical) and so on.
