Exhibition: Tenjō Sajiki

Tenjō Sajiki was a Japanese independent theatre troupe led by Terayama Shūji and active between 1967 and 1983. Considered to be a major phenomenon of the Japanese underground scene, the group has produced a number of stage works marked by experimentalism, folklore influences, social provocation, grotesque eroticism and the flamboyant fantasy characteristic of Terayama’s oeuvre. Tenjō Sajiki benefitted greatly from collaborations with a number of prominent artists, including musicians: J. A. Seazer, Mikami Kan, Carmen Maki and graphic designers: Uno Akira and Yokoo Tadanori, whose works are the core of the exhibition.
