Hej då Campanella! is a Swedish/Japanese collaboration between choreographer Rumiko Otsuka and audio and visual artists Kunihiko Matsuo and juni Koyanagi.


The beloved japanese author Kenji Miazawa (d. 1933) is a representation of japanese traditions. As a devoted buddist self-sacrifice is a reoccuring theme in his litterary world and is also one of the hightest valued virtues in Japan.

Review by Clemens Altgård ,

Skånska Dagbladet



‘…Visuellt är det hela mycket tilltalande med en enkel men elegant scenografi där fyra flyttbara skärmar används på ett flexibelt vis. Musiken är av det minimalistiska slaget och fungerar ypperligt i sammanhanget. Dansinslagen med Rumiko Otsuka och Elin

Waileth är ytterst välkoreograferade och präglas av en expressiv smidighet. Detta gör att det blir en mycket njutbar

Helhetsupplevelse…’
