‘Non-verbal performance’ show GEAR East Version has run its exceptionally unique show at a small theater in Japan over the past year and will pass its 1st anniversary on December 22, 2018. To celebrate, the cast have recorded messages that will be played in the lobby for a limited period, and limited-edition merchandise will be sold.
GEAR East Version allowed free entry to children back in summer as well as offered a special ¥1,000 senior discount to those aged 60+ in autumn. It has become a new must-visit location in Chiba and enjoys popularity with both adults and children.
Comment: Toshihito Kumagai (Chiba City Mayor)
“I give my heartiest congratulations to GEAR East Version which has turned one-years-old. It has actively endeavored to carry out numerous measures in Chiba including expanding the opportunities for the people of the city to experience and appreciate the excellent culture of the arts. It is a wonderful occasion that this performance will continue to be held. I pray for the continued success of GEAR East Version and the good health and happiness to all of those involved.”
Comment: Eimi Naruse (Dempagumi.inc / Fujisaki Ayane: Doll Character)
“Congratulations GEAR East Version on one year! ☆ I went to see this show because Pinky from my group Dempagumi.inc was performing in it. Just about everything was fresh and warm and sparkly. When it was over I just sat there for a while blown away. More than anything though Pinky’s doll’s hands and feet movements were beautiful and really cute! I definitely want to go and see it again! ☆Honestly, congratulations☆”
Comment: Uki Satake (9nine / Hirona Murata: Doll Character)
“Congratulations on the one-year anniversary! I was especially taken aback by the performance that used lights! It’s a show that deeply moves you despite there being no words, so I think it’s something that can be enjoyed by men and women of all ages as well as foreigners who don’t speak the language. I want everyone to see Hiroro [Murata’s] doll character, something you can’t see when you go to see 9nine [live] ♡ I want to go again, too!”
Comment: Rika Mayama (Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku / Ayaka Yasumoto: Doll Character)
“Congratulations, GEAR East on your one-year anniversary! Despite being in charge of talking [to the crowd during concerts for our group] Yasumoto stood up on stage for a non-verbal performance. In the dressing room we have a joke where she moves like a doll for us! So one day I want all of [the group] members to act like dolls at shows!
