About HANCHU-YUEI
A theatre collective launched in 2007 and based in Tokyo. Suguru Yamamoto writes and directs its pieces characterized by critical approaches to the boundary between reality and fiction that question the ways interactions between them occur. The themes are humorously drawn from opposites such as dream and reality, play and play within play, video game (or virtual reality) and the real world, or love and hate.

 

Their recent works involve two-dimensional letters, images, lights and floor plans that are projected, and these elements organically relate to the three-dimensional bodies of performers, which results in 2.5-dimensional theatre.

 

Writer and Director: Suguru Yamamoto
Performers: Kazuki Ohashi, Sachiro Nomoto
Art director: Kazuki Takakura
