FFT Düsseldorf “Nippon Performance Night”

<< ABOUT THE PIECE >>
Are you happy to be with me? ——
This theatrical piece was written as a “children’s play” for the Osaka International Art Festival for Kids 2013. The underlying concept was a play for adults that would move the hearts of children.
It is performed by an actual family of three: the playwright Norimizu Ameya, his partner Korosuke, and his daughter Kurumi. Going back and forth across the border between documentary and fiction, it opens with the scene of a family at breakfast, and eventually the house turns into a classroom. The family take up fundamental questions about sex and copulation, marriage, and the relationships of husband/wife, parent/child, and human/animal. Can the parents teach their child about the beginning and end of life, and the living that occurs in between?
