This year, the “Geidai x Collection” has started!
Originally, it was a project to be performed on stage, however due the cancellation of the regular event it will now be held as a social networking project under the title of “Geidai x Collection vol.0”.
What is beauty?
The answer differs from person to person and there are multiple ways to express “beauty”.
We would like to collect a variety of artworks expressing your idea of “beauty”.
We hope that the future of “Geidai x Collection” will be a place for all TUA students who contemplate the idea of beauty.
-What is “Geidai x Collection”?
Each team creates one piece of work based on the two elements of “art” and “music”, that pursues their idea of “beauty” and expresses it on stage. Until last year the event was known as “Miss Geidai” the main event of Geisai, this year it has been renewed.
- What is a beauty contest in the style of Geidai?
The “Miss Geidai” that have been previously held is different from the so-called “beauty contest” that are generally held in Japan. In a sense, it is a “Geidai style” event to have a stage performance that is based on the three pillars of modeling, music and art. There were many questions about the name and execution of the event. The executive committee had a lot to consider to improve this event, which has led to the reinvention.
-What is beauty?(Thoughts in the project)
The goal of "Miss Geidai" is not only to show the beauty on the outside but to demonstrate the artistic talents of the TUA students and to broaden the range of their artistic expression.
“Geidai x Collection” aims to further expand upon the definition of “beauty” through new perspectives.
(1) The element of elimination of the model.
We thought that with art and music, students may not necessarily need models to express their beauty on stage.
In the name “Geidai x Collection”, the X is a multiplication sign that represents the two pillars of art and music.
(2) Elimination of Miss.
The title “Miss” is used as a term of endearment for a woman; however, we feel that this title may limit the potential of the event.
We hope that “Geidai x Collection” will be a place of free expression open to all TUA students, regardless of gender.
