What is''The Story on the Zoo''

Here's the translation:


"We conducted a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the production of this show, which is being offered for free. We received generous support from many contributors. To all our backers, thank you very much for your support.

It's a slightly mysterious tale set in the fictional zoo, "Aoki Zoo." It tells the story of Hoshino, the chimpanzee caretaker, and Tooko, a world-famous singer, in a love story titled "The Good Couple's Day."

Another story unfolds between Aoki, the director of Aoki Zoo, and Kimi-chan, who comes to live in the zoo, in "The Aoki I Fell in Love With."

The growth story of Haruko, the daughter born between Hoshino and Tooko in "Haruko."

A short musical featuring Haruko's daughter, Akichan, titled "Hoshi."

As an omnibus drama set in one zoo, we have currently staged up to 4 episodes.

We produced it in a reading format, without building a stage set, in the hope that one day it could be performed in a real zoo. We make ample use of music and sound effects to take the audience into a richly imagined world.

In 2017, "The Aoki I Fell in Love With" will be presented at Kyoto City Zoo.

We also share feedback from our audience."


They perform original numbers with beautiful melodies that linger in your ears forever, as well as traditional songs from various countries around the world, including Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. In their second album, "Gasparo," which features artwork by Ryo Hiroshi Nishino (of the comedy duo King Kong), they showcase productions with large orchestras reminiscent of movie soundtracks. In 2016, they created a stage production in collaboration with "Sand Art" and performed it in concert halls. They continue to challenge the possibilities of real music, including composing music for theater and performing in planetariums.
