Hollywood Fringe Festival (HFF) is the world’s most famous theater festival held in Los Angeles, USA.
We are honored to be able to participate in this great festival.

At this festival, we would like to perform Japanese-subcultural style – ’ live action and entertainment with a taste of anime, comics, and games.
Alice in Project participated in the 2021 HFF online and was nominated for the Overseas Performance Award and received great acclaim.
The cast consists of five Japanese female cast members who are beautifully dressed in Japanese traditional costumes as well as contemporary costumes. Using three-dimensional sword action, projector images, and sound effects, they will perform a powerful stage show amazing the audience with their well choreographed sword action and dance. The 30-minute show will be followed by an audience-participation sword demonstration workshop.

Notice to customers.
After the stage show, we were planning to hold a sword workshop with audience participation, but this has been changed to a stage commentary, talk show, and networking event. We apologize for the content change.

This production crosses international borders. The show will surprise and entertain audiences and critics alike. We hope that you will all come and enjoy this female based show at HFF!

Warning: the show uses swords and guns during the performance.
