Rock The Silent Comedy!
Ketch! (with the red mohawk), was a solo pantomime performer until his fateful encounter with HIRO-PON, (who has the yellow mohawk). They soon got together and started GAMARJOBAT in 1999. “GAMARJOBAT” actually means “Hello” in Georgian (that's the Georgia near Russia, not the state in the USA!). Their highly-acclaimed performances transcend all language and cultural barriers and they have been invited to perform at over 200 festivals in more than 30 countries. Recently, GAMARJOBAT have mainly been performing in Japan because for a long time they were spending more than half of every year doing shows overseas. However, since many offers and requests to perform all over the world keep coming in, they are still juggling their domestic and international schedule. GAMARJOBAT fascinates people because of three main reasons, the acts are very well planned, full of energy, and fun to watch. They were selected as one of, “The 100 most respected Japanese people in the world” in the Japanese-edition of Newsweek magazine.
In 2014, they started their own brand new project, “THE GAMARJOBAT COMPANY”, getting together with other professional stage artists to create and perform pantomime-based silent comedy work.
