About the event

 “Super Premium Soft Double Vanilla Rich” will be back on stage for the first time in seven years in Bangkok, Thailand this March.

This show, premiered in May 2014, has already been presented in more than twenty cities around the world – in Europe, Central and South America, and Japan. And, the performance has received a very warm reception in the all cities we visited.

After 2011, when playwright Toshiki Okada made a shift of creative course in the direction of exploring fiction, chelfitsch appeared in a succession of weighty works, as “Current Location” in 2012 and “Ground and Floor” in 2013. For his latest opus, in contrast, Okada is aspiring to a dance-oriented production that manages to be at once thoroughly light-hearted and humorous as well as biting and merciless. The setting is a convenience store, a place symbolizing contemporary Japanese society.

The performance featuring seven distinctive characters unfolds to the accompaniment of all 48 preludes and fugues that make up J.S. Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” transmuted into cheap background music piped into the store. Lovers of contemporary theater can hardly wait to see what this radical hybrid of narrative and corporeality brings to light about Japan’s “today”!
