Event Description

“OZmate," based in Takarazuka, Japan, is the all-female musical theatrical company and the only performance group from Japan at the New York International Fringe Festival this year. OZmate performs its original musical, “The Legend of Oni."

Theme of this play is about the conscience in our lives. Oni is an Ogre from Japanese Mythology known as the god of mountains with a fearful appearance. It is believed that the Oni come to punish humans when they misbehave. The  play  touched  the  heart  of  audience  with  an  overarching  message  that  we  all  have  a  seed  of becoming Oni (hatred, anger and grudges) in each of us.

Show has successfully closed in Tokyo and Osaka in 2013. 21 freshly composed original songs with traditional Japanese Drum beat leads this human drama brought a sensation in the Japanese musical scene and still now receiving numerous show  requests.  Casts  are  all  female,  sensitive  yet  energetic  actors  in  gorgeous  Kimono-based costume  with  powerful  Japanese  fan  choreography  will  take  you  to  100  minutes  journey  through Oriental myth. 
”The legend of Oni” takes place in Heian period (Year 794 to 1185) Before the Samurai world in Japan, all the nobles were living and fighting to get their power. Noble  Nagamichi  and  his  son  Ebuki  were  in  middle  of  this  power  struggle  fight  and  turned  their hearts  to  an  Oni.  Nagamichi  who  looks  like  a  human  but has  an  Oni  heart.  Ebuki  changed  his appearance to an Oni do for hatred and grudges he held against his father. “The Legend of Oni” is a Japanese style musical story written through these two different Onis.
