Often described as Japan’s answer to the Blue Man Group, Siro-A brings a hybrid brand of live entertainment, fusing mime, visual effects and an electronic soundtrack to create a theatrical feast for the senses.
Through dance, mime and puppetry, the company of six white-faced performers interact with technology in a way never seen before. Their show this Friday at the Haugh Performing Arts Center in Glendora is titled “Siro-A: The Technical Digital Comedy Experiment.”
This high-energy show breaks through the language barrier with their non-verbal performance art and physical theatre, dazzling audiences across generations. An expression of the collaboration between humans, technology, and music, the show has been called “pure fun.”
Siro-A makes innovative use of video projection, light animation, laser effects and a pulsating electro beat, weaving grand illusions with their precisely choreographed routines.
Formed in 2002 by a group of high school friends in Miyagi Prefecture, Siro-A has steadily gained popularity worldwide, having performed for more than 30,000 at the Shanghai Expo and winning the Spirit of the Fringe award at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.
“Siro-A: The Technical Digital Comedy Experiment” will hit the stage this Friday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7. Siro-A will also present “Kidtastic!” on Saturday, March 15, at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. The Haugh Performing Arts Center is located at 1000 W. Foothill Blvd. in Glendora. Tickets are $30 for general audiences, $28 for seniors, $20 for students and $15 for kids 16 and under.
