Yudai Kamisato / Okazaki Art Theatre “The Story of Descending the Long Slopes of Valparaíso”, TOKYO performance

About the event

Yudai Kamisato / Okazaki Art Theatre
The Story of Descending the Long Slopes of Valparaíso

21st – 25th, August 2019 @ Goethe-Institut Tokyo

The story was woven by Kamisato from his experiences traveling to various parts of South America during an 11-month stay in Argentina. It is performed by the Argentine actors and dancers he encountered, and Eduard Fukushima, a dancer of who was born into a family of Japanese immigrants in Brazil and has come into the limelight in Europe as well. Coming from the opposite side of the earth, they tell the story of the play in their own words.

The jumbled, atypical space of the seating area, which contains a bunk bed, church, and even stalls, was designed by the architectural unit dot architects. The stage is given a phantasmic coloring by the backdrop, which was designed by Midori Hirota of Kantaro, a sign company. In the context of these weird match-ups, the members of the audience freely find a place for viewing the play.
