Corporeal Mime Creation & Education
tarinainanika is a physical theatre company specialising in the art of Corporeal Mime. Directors Kentaro Suyama and Tania Coke spent many years under the direction of the legendary Steven Wasson and Corinne Soum (last assistants of the founder of Corporeal Mime, Etienne Decroux) and were long-time members of their company, Theatre de l’Ange Fou. After moving to Tokyo, Kentaro and Tania set up tarinainanika and have since been performing their original creations at festivals and venues across Japan. They teach regular classes in Tokyo and ad hoc workshops for anyone interested in learning about the expressive power of the body.
