WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
On the heels of overwhelming enthusiasm from New Yorkers for the staged reading of Girl X at Japan Society, the Society now presents the original Japanese production written and directed by Suguru Yamamoto. Weaving a tapestry of complex emotions, the story unfolds through the dialogue and highly physical performance of two actors onstage as well as carefully crafted projections on-screen that mirror a text messaging-obsessed society. Performed by Yamamoto's company Theater Collective HANCHU-YUEI, this unsettling comedy offers a glimpse into an anxiety-ridden, post-3/11 Japan.
Note: This show is in Japanese with English supertitles.
