F/T15 God Bless Baseball
This event has ended.
Japanese playwright and director Toshiki Okada is renowned for his radical use of language and physicality, such as in the Fukushima-inspired science fiction fable “Current Location” or “Super Premium Soft Double Vanilla Rich”, which peeped into labor conditions in Japan through the context of a convenience store. His work has been acclaimed not only at home in Japan but also overseas in Europe. Now he makes his first co-production with Korean partners. His approach is a novel one: re-examining the history of Japan and Korea from the perspective of baseball, the American sport that has been successfully imported into both nations. The result is a sweeping exploration of the influence of America on modern Asian history, taking in both personal experiences of baseball and the stories of major league players in Japan and Korea.
Talk by Toshiki Okada and Genichiro Takahashi “Our Theory of Baseball”
