A dream-like show by street performance unit Compaignie des Quidams. The performance piece, Rêve d'Herbert, was first created in 1997 and has been put on around 400 times all over the world. The performance has been adapted especially for the National Art Center, Tokyo, Tokyo Midtown, Roppongi Hills and other venues. The slim, human-like shadow-beings, wander around the streets seeking out light. In the quiet of night, these figures gesture to each other, coming close and moving apart in a dance-like dialog. They also beckon to passersby. Before you know it, you are swept up in their mysterious world.

■Dates : From sunset, Saturday, March 27 till sunrise, Sunday, March 28, several times in each location
■Venue : Roppongi Hills Arena, Tokyo Midtown and the National Art Center, Tokyo
