    Stage performance by playwright/director Toshiki Okada's theater company Chelfitsch. Realized in collaboration with the band Sangatsu, who also provided music for "Genzaichi" in 2011, this "music theater" piece portraying humans in the near future against the backdrop of a dwindling Japanese-speaking population has received high acclaim both in Japan and abroad since its premiere performance in 2013. As a YCAM exclusive, the performance will be followed by a live performance by Sangatsu.

    This experience-based "play without actors" set in a library was realized in collaboration between Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells, two British artists who have been pushing the limits of contemporary theater.

    The stage for this piece is one single library table, on which notebooks, photo collections and other books prepared by the artists are piled up. Two visitors each form pairs to re-examine the experience of "reading" guided by writings in the notebooks and whispering voiced heard via headphones.
