It's announced that Club Jazz Byobu is selected as a finalist for the prestigious Ito Kisaku Award of set design.
Organized by Japan Association of Theatre Designers and Technicians (JATDT), the award is given annually for the best set design works of the previous year and named after Ito Kisaku, the famed set designer known for theatre and film. The entry for Ito on IMDb is here.
Club Jazz Byobu, proudly billed as "the world's smallest jazz venue," is a movable stage set for performance and operated in conjuction with Jazz Art Sengawa.
Nagamine Maki, the designer, expressed her delight for the nomination via twitter and thanked to all involved for their support.
