Making its international debut, the tribute show toMiyazaki Hayao (Spirited Away, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, Arrietty, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Laputa, Porco Rosso, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind) is a wonder of aerial, fire, burlesque, dance, song and rope feats. Viewers and critics have hailed the performances as “a hell of a show”, “terrific” and “amazing… loved all the acts”. Nine acts round outthis spectacle, each one dedicated to one of Miyazaki’s well-loved films - each one paying tribute to the master in a very different way.

From fire acts to opera, from burlesque to silk rope aerials, this performance is our own special way to pay tribute to a master animator and director who has brought audiences worldwide such pleasure with his film.
