About the event

56th Kishida Kunio Drama Award winning!

Think positive.
That seems what the Japanese needs at this moment. We have lost so many things; and by having lost so much, we have realized that tomorrow is not always guaranteed. We are simultaneously experiencing the night that never arrives and the night that never breaks. At a glance, it may seem extremely horrible: however, it had always been like this. We just were never aware of it, or we had been mistaken that we were aware. We need to understand thoroughly that life and death are repeated under such condition. What should one do for that? How could one reach where one should arrive, passing the boarder? The answer is very simple. To think positive.

This is a story happened in just one second. There are times that everything could change within a second. We could loose everything in only a second. We cannot know how our lives would be a second later. Most of us had taken that for granted. So was Taimon from the Shakespeare, and he deserved the tragic ending. However, our Taimon is different. He is well aware. No matter how hopeless it is to live, there is always the power to resist and think positively. Let us think positive, and let us confront with it. We shall wait until the moment arrives.
This word “until,” in Japanese, could imply both “soon” or “some day (in the future)”. In old days, it had a meaning of “simultaneously”. How we conceive this moment as “the moment that never arrives” or “this moment right now,” would depend on “how positively we could think.”
Immense amount of information, a number of words, a life of a person, history and culture of some nation, relationship among people, hope, despair, happiness, anger, sorrow, joy…. All put in one second. Within that one only second, I hope to find confrontational positive existence.
