One Hundred Years of Solitude


ed2k: 100 years of solitude.avi [700.59 Mb]

This sumptuous-yet-austere liberal re-working of Cien años de soledad by Gabriel García Márquez, arranged on a five-part stage surrounded by the audience, was historically the latest production of Tenjo Sajiki. It is also something of a theater prequel to Terayama's last film, Farewell to the Ark.

Like the earlier two ATG films Terayama directed, Saraba hakobune (Farewell to the Ark) was also one part of a larger project. “One-Hundred Years of Solitude” was first performed as a play, the last new play by the Tenjo Sajiki troupe. Performed in a large warehouse, the audience sat on all sides of a central stage that had four smaller satellite stages projected off of its corners. Scenes from the novel took place simultaneously on all stages, forcing the audience to choose between scenes and thereby to partially create the play themselves. This was also the first of Terayama's plays to be professionally filmed, a difficult project given the structure of the performance... (Steve Clarke)


Shintokumaru (Poison Boy)


ed2k: Shintokumaru.avi [696.59 Mb]

Shuji Terayama and J.A.Seazer's phantasmagoric folk-psych-symph-prog-rock opera. Historical Tenjo Sajiki performance from 1978. A brief synopsis (for a somewhat different version of the play) can be found here:

Much of the symbolism of Shintokumaru is shared with Terayama's earlier masterpiece motion picture Pastoral: to die in the country (also known as Pastoral hide-and-seek).

Neon Sign Transformer

Neon Signs play an important role when it comes to giving aesthetic look to an object, shop or place. But, all these neon signs require Neon Sign Transformer. These transformers are used to convert mains voltages to those suitable for powering neon signs. They are also known as Luminous Tube Transformers or Gaseous Tube Transformers.

Neon Sign Transformers come in different shapes and sizes. They are distinguished by being current limited centre grounded. Center grounded means that the center of the transformers output winding is electrically connected to ground. There are different output voltages including:
2,000V, 4,000V, 5,000V, 6,000V, 7,500V, 9,000V, 12,000V and 15,000V

As I use a Mac I am unable to open an ed2k:script.pdf of Directions to servants.

I am very interested in accessing this work by Terayama as I saw a performance of it in London in the 80's and have never forgotten it.

Thanks for your help in this matter.
