Okazaki Art Theatre
About the artist
Established in 2003 to present works both original and existing works under the direction of Yudai Kamisato. Kamisato was born in Peru and raised in Kawasaki. His works examine people’s attitudes to politics and society, and portray the coexistence of people who cannot understand one another; highlighted by the unique presence of each of the characters on stage. Okazaki Art Theatre participated in FESTIVAL/TOKYO for three years in a row from 2010 to 2012. In 2012 Kamisato was officially invited to the Taipei Arts Festival to create his first overseas performance. As a playwright, Kamisato’s works Haircut-san(2009) and black coffee (not for drink) (2013) were both nominated for the Kishida Kunio Drama Award.
