YCAM Exclusive Stage & Music Performance
The Chelfitsch troupe around playwright/director Toshiki Okada, a leading figure in the realm of contemporary performing arts in Japan, stage their play "Ground and Floor."
The piece's central theme is Japan and the Japanese language, illustrated in the form of a fictional story set in Japan in the near future. Against the backdrop of a restless nation on the verge of collapse and war, the story revolves around a family and its contrasting, disconnected members: the old mother, whose ghost continues to appear in front of her family after her death; and the young mother, who is about to give birth to a baby. "Ground and Floor" is to be categorized as a work of "music theater" that was realized in collaboration with the band Sangatsu, who were previously in charge of musical accompaniment in Chelfitsch's piece "Current Location" (2011). Sangatsu's live set following the performance completes a program that is typically YCAM considering the facility's tried-and-trusted acoustic conditions."
One day after the event, Toshiki Okada, together with members of Sangatsu and YCAM, will hold a workshop on the theme of "music theater", with the aim to enhance the participants' experience of the play and the process of its production. Look forward to a YCAM exclusive program showcasing a piece that has been highly evaluated in Japan and abroad since its first performance in 2013.
