A Made-in-Japan first! Incredible entertainment found in Kyoto!

The Gear Theater has become the newest landmark of Kyoto where Japan’s first and original non-verbal performance is held. First launching in 2012, this performance which even now continues to break records through its unprecedented long run achieved its 1000th show in June 2015 and has attracted more than 80,000 guests. The building that houses the theater was built as the Kyoto branch of Osaka Mainichi Newspaper in 1928 under the design of Goichi Takeda, and over its 90 years, it has retained its original appearance and visitors can still enjoy its retro atmosphere.

Bringing together top-class performances and the latest techniques

A story is spun out non-verbally so that the audience can enjoy it regardless of age or language, and so many people from within Japan and abroad can come to the show. Through toy dolls and human robots known as Roboroids, stories of the human heart via various opportunities are expressed through world-class performers providing mime, breakdancing, magic and juggling with action, emotion and dance without a single word uttered but affecting all five senses. And in tandem with the latest techniques including the currently popular projection mapping, full-color LED dresses and customized laser beams utilizing a maximum of 16 million colors, you will be able to undergo an impressive experience that you have never encountered.
