▼Kanna Hashimoto Full comment▼
This work, which was the first stage for me, brought me many assets and emotions as an actor.
Under John’s direction, the days I spent with the charming oil shop mates were, even now, glorious and lively, just like being spirited away.
This time, a video work edited by John and Maoko of the stage “Spirited Away” will be distributed.
I hope that both those who came to see it and those who couldn’t come to see it will be able to see it with the intention of visiting the oil shop.
All the bathhouses welcome the 8 million gods called customers! ▼ Mone Kamishiraishi’s full comment ▼
When I think of the time I spent with this stage, my heart still fills with love.
Even though I was a performer, I always thought, “I’m not good enough!” I am happy that you can enjoy the work from a new perspective under the editing by John and Maoko.
The world of Ghibli created by real people on stage.
By all means, please get lost with Chihiro as many times as you like. ―――――――――――――――
