The playwright and director Yukio Shiba has established a strong reputation for highly individual yet universal theatrical portrayals of humanity. His award-winning musical play “Our Planet” was the allegorical tale of both a planet and a girl. This is a meditation on the theme of distance and the Great East Japan Earthquake, which Shiba was far away from when it occurred.
Two plays unfolded simultaneously with the same cast across two adjacent theatre spaces, serving as a metaphor for the distance that causes the mental divides and various boundaries separating us. As they watched, the audiences in each theatre found their imaginations drawn to the other story happening nearby and how the two plays form a single overall narrative.
This was a co-production between F/T and Taipei Performing Arts Center (open 2022).
