Kamikaze Cutesauce: Cosplay Club
A Japanese Fusion of Movement and Horror!!!
Milwaukee, WI… The Quasimondo Milwaukee Physical Theatre invites you to Tama, Tokyo Prefecture, Kamata Junior High. Life is tough for class rep, Suki Morihoto. Tests, Phys. Ed., clubs, peer pressure, bullies, creeper teachers, and that strange transfer student from Kyoto who dresses funny, and won’t stop staring at me in study hall, what’s his problem? Oh, there’s also saving the world.
Cosplay, short for costume play, is a performance art where participants dress as and embody a specific character or idea from popular culture, including fantasy, science fiction, video games, cartoons, and comic books. A global phenomenon, cosplay has inspired a generation to shed the shackles of their lives for brief forays into the fantastic, intergalactic, and supernatural.
