A special one-night-only concert at the Art Festival venue: "What the Darkness Plays - Nighttime Fantasies Invited by Radio Gymnastics" presented by an outstanding member of the Japan Philharmonic.

NEWS:Main Sight

At the Saitama Triennale 2020 main site (the former Omiya Ward Office venue), we will present a concert combining classical music, gymnastics, and narration by actors in the form of "What the Darkness Plays - Illusion of the Night Led by Radio Gymnastics".
It is an experimental and challenging experiment that combines a classical performance by members of the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra (string quartet) with narration by Yojiro Iwaya, an actor, to awaken the senses that lie deep within human beings and awaken the imagination that has never been explored before. We hope you will experience this special one-night-only concert held at the art festival venue after the museum closes.
