gaijin-san company

mr. foreigner

 

gaijin-san are currently working on the 'Reality  Bytes' project in collaboration with Theatr Iolo  See NEW WORK in the links in the menu.  Kylie Ann was also recently selected as Associate Artist with Candoco Dance Company for their 'Moving Bodies' project . Kylie will work with Candoco for the next 3 years.  More information will follow.

Our company policy is to devise experimental and physical theatre/dance, which is both innovative and accessible for all.  We try and bring experimental theatre to the community through workshops and site-located performances, along with productions in professional venues.

We use movement, dance and text combined with multimedia for performances and provide workshops for a variety of ages having provided workshops for primary and secondary school children, A-level and university students, and adults with learning difficulties.

Our company name means 'mr. foreigner', a contradictory phrase that is used out of respect and to ridicule.  This juxtaposition informs our work and the idea of being a 'foreigner' at whatever level is a theme personal to us.  

gaijin-san company was formed in 2006 by Kylie Ann Smith and Ricky White, although Kylie has worked as a freelance director under this name since 2004.
