We consider our works as poetry; rather than utilizing each practices that are traditionally used to directly describe a storyline, each elements exist according to their own aesthetic reasons, encounter and communicate to each other, and create neutral relationship between body-puppet-animation. Inspired by Japanese dance theatre butoh as body movement and theatrical techniques, our works delicately transfer audience into meditational, comical, entertaining, and surreal world.
The each members Walter Santucci, Nao Kobayashi and Rikko Murakami brings own expertise; animation, puppetry fabrication, theatre costume, and body movement.
The name Shilo Kloko came from 2 Japanese words,
meaning shiro “white”, and kuroko “black-stagehand.”
Our works suggest to expand our conventional definition of beauty, and encourage to embrace unknown possibilities.
