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.
