This event has ended.

Playwright, director and Rikkyo University professor Masataka Matsuda invites four emerging theater artists and groups to present new work exploring experimentation and dialogue about what he calls the “theater of incidents.” The participants are all artists in their twenties consciously using, dismantling and reconstructing the rules of theater space. Each will create a new work of up to 60 minutes, which are to be performed in pairs alongside discussions with guest speakers. The program aims to stage the phenomena or incidents that appear in a certain time and place, as opposed merely to recreating the words of a script. This will unravel and reconsider the apparently ordinary act of writing and staging a play. How can the dynamics of the various elements that comprise theater, from language to the body, space, and audience, be utilized to create incidents? The search for new perceptions and ideas between audiences and artists starts here.
