F/T in the City Performance Series

Tera

Yukari Sakata (director) + Miho Inatsugu (performer)
+ Kyojun Tanaka (music)
Based on the verse drama “Daffodils and Wooden Fish”
by Juro Miyoshi and more

Narratives of place, space, and time resonate in a temple
The director Yukari Sakata previously collaborated with Palestinian artists for “Rashomon | Yabunonaka” at F/T14. The actor Miho Inatsugu has performed in productions by the likes of Okazaki Art Theatre, chelfitsch, and Sample. The drummer and percussionist Kyojun Tanaka conducts research into timbre alongside his career as a performer. These three artists born in the 1980s bring contemporary issues into a space that emerges through storytelling and percussion. The venue is a temple. Based on Juro Miyoshi’s verse drama “Daffodils and Wooden Fish,” the text interweaves fragments of literature, the local history of the temple, and Buddhist sermons, forming a unique resonance of voice, body, and sound.
