A site-specific theatrical home shopping experience

This new play is performed solo by its creator, actor Takeshi Fukuda, known for his work with Shigeki Nakano + Frankens. He brings his highly original and humorous approach this time to home shopping. Fukuda introduces fictitious products in the style of a TV shopping channel, harnessing the things and people gathered at each performance. Mixing reality and fiction, his agreeably bewildering sales pitch turns the audience into potential customers.




Takeshi Fukuda

Actor (Nakano Shigeki + Frankens)

Takeshi Fukuda has appeared in almost every Nakano Shigeki + Frankens production since it launched in 2003. His many other credits include Hyunsuk Seo’s “From the Sea” (F/T14). He has performed solo since 2009, beguiling audiences with his unique delivery that mixes truth and fiction. In 2015, he created “Eagle”, based on fables written on Twitter, and “Kamo”, especially arranged for Camo-Café at Nishi-Sugamo Arts Factory.
