Initially an architect by profession, Kiguchi returned to his artistic roots when he dived headfirst into the world of dramaturgy in 2005 and founded Akumanoshirushi three years later. Since then, he has continued to produce performance pieces in various styles, including for the stage.
Although his theatre works are based on classical plays, they tend to address contemporary social issues and highlight characteristics of the venue itself. Kiguchi’s performance art pieces on the other hand seek to utilise the entire exhibition space, which is achieved by diminishing boundaries between artists and audience.Takuma Ishikawa Architect and stage designer
After gaining much experience in a diverse body of architecture ranging from residential and landscape to furniture and art installations at Itsuko Hasegawa Atelier and Atelier Hitoshi Abe, Ishikawa went freelance and currently co-presides his own firm NEWEST. He has been involved in Akumanoshirushi since its establishment, mainly taking charge of stage design and set-building.
