SiroThe “next generation of entertainment” from Japan is set to arrive at Harris Center for the Arts as SIRO-A, a six-member strong performance group from Sendai, Japan makes its North America debut on the West Coast. Set against a heavy, pulsing techno beat, the show features intricately choreographed projections, LED suits, lights and lasers.

SIRO-A: The Digital Technodelic Experiment will take place on Tuesday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Wednesday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m.

SIRO, (white or colorless in Japanese) means “belong to no group, impossible to define as anybody.”

SIRO-A is a revolution in live entertainment, fusing mime, groundbreaking visual effects and a techno soundtrack to create a whole new entertainment, a “Technodelic and Visual Show.” This project received support from California Presenters, the Western States Arts Federation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Formed in 2002 in Sendai, SIRO-A is fast becoming a worldwide phenomenon. The group made its first public appearances at festivals in Japan in 2005, followed shortly by Japanese TV features. SIRO-A’s biggest live show to date debuted to 30,000 spectators at the Shanghai Expo 2010, where the question came up: “Is that the Japanese answer to Blue Man Group?”

In August 2011, SIRO-A was invited to take the stage at Edinburgh’s renowned Fringe Festival and won the prestigious “Spirit of the Fringe” Award. International media exposure quickly followed.

So what is it that makes the show so special? SIRO-A is new and varied, innovative and pretty crazy, energetic, cool and extremely entertaining. The beat of the electronic music hits a visceral nerve. The visual effects, grand illusions and perfectly choreographed routines are masterfully woven together to create an utterly new live experience.

A performance that must be seen to be believed, the six strong mysterious SIRO-A cast offers a vibrant, non-verbal performance. It is the ultimate expression of the collaboration between human, technology and music that people have never seen before — an audio-visual spectacular for all ages.

Tickets are priced at $25 to $45, premium $55 and students with ID $12. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket.

Harris Center is located at 10 College Parkway in Folsom.
