Artist Information
Ban'yu-inryoku Theatre Group
I realise that I saw the Ban'yu-inryoku Theatre Group - formed by J A Caesar in August 1983 - when they performed his "Suna Desert Zoo" (music, direction and artistic direction by him) in Manchester on 16th September 1986.
I still have programme, flyer, poster and a tape of music from that performance. In the programme it states nine productions undertaken by the company between 1983 and 1986 - L'Empereur de Chine; Origin of the Double (Shadow Dodging); Koshoh Densetsu (The Rainbow Myth); Workshop (Winter Fuse); Kaku Teien no Hanzai (Crime in the Fantasy Garden);Sabaku no Dobutstuen (Suna - Desert Zoo); Baron Stamphore's water dropiet (Eyeball Museum of the Eternal Amusement Machines); Out of Man (The Stranger in a Clock); Kusa Meikyu (The Grass Labyrinth)
The production played in Edinburgh, London, Northampton, Preston and Manchester.
My memory recalls a very strange evening with projections, acrobatics and excellent music.

Jashumon
I saw the Ban'yu-inryoku Theatre Group perform Jashumon in the summer of 2013. It was even more impressive than I thought it would have been.
