OKAZAKI ART THEATRE “+51 Aviación, San Borja” in Yokohama
About the event
Yudai Kamisato as director of Okazaki Art Theatre continues to explore people’s attitudes towards politics and society, and the coexistence of people who cannot understand one another. Following in the footsteps of his grandmother, who emigrated from Okinawa to Peru, Kamisato researched the current situations of South America and Okinawa for his new creation.
Incorporating elements of the life of his “Mexican Theatre father”, Seki Sano, who was active before the war, and died in a foreign country; Kamisato’s own choice to work in Japan, while adjusting to life as an immigrant; and the story of the entrepreneur Ryoichi Jinnai, who is currently supporting the community of people of Japanese descent in Peru and other countries of South America. This piece explores the concept of “homeland” through the stories of people who emigrated to foreign countries in the past and died overseas, and the stories of people currently living in foreign lands. This perspective of an observer also informs us about ourselves, living in contemporary Japanese society.
