[ Manga ] MANGA Performance W3

MANGA Performance W3, is a stage production playing in Shibuya. This performance is unique in that it’s non-verbal, using mimes and various tools to convey meaning without using words.
The play is based on “The Amazing 3” (known in Japan as “Wonder 3”), a manga released in 1965 by Tezuka Osamu.
The Galactic Federation sends three galaxy patrol agents, called “Wonder 3,” to earth in order to judge whether human beings, who do nothing but wage wars, should be destroyed or allowed to live.
It’s a story about how each agent turns into an animal on earth and investigates humanity.
This original stage adaptation of the manga is being performed at Theater, which is a 10-minute walk from Shibuya station’s Hachiko Exit.
