The team hails from South Korea, Japan, and Turkey respectively. Tokyo brought them together to combine their diverse backgrounds and years of experience in concert, film, theater, and event production, talent management, booking agency, energy, and banking.

We utilize global network to provide artists with opportunities to expand their boundaries of expression in original performances across disciplines (music, dance, other arts) to be presented around the world.

The Tarantula.

The legend of the Tarantella dates back to Italy in the Middle Ages. Once bitten by a poisonous tarantula spider, the victim would fall into a trance that could only be cured by frenzied dancing.

Musicians would surround the victim searching for the correct rhythm that would be the cure.

 

Tarantula partners like to bite and then cure, going through many rhythms in between.

 

"Produce something we would enjoy"
