sons wo: CITY III
Written and directed by Kishodai Kageyama
The final part of the trilogy “CITY” which has the past, present and future as its respective themes. Set in a town in the corner of a devastated future world, it depicts people beginning to find hope in their desperate struggle for survival.
A story is necessary to paint a picture of the future, and “CITY III” manages to establish a narrative and surge towards the hopes of the future on the very margins of conventional storytelling.
Formed in 2008, sons wo: is a theatrical project by Kishodai Kageyama which has mainly been rolled out in the two cities of Tokyo and Hamamatsu. Kageyama examines the work of language, consciousness and image within human beings and turns them into theatrical plays. He advocates theater as a space for open introspection where human ultimately confronts things alone. He participated in the Emerging Artists Program for Festival/Tokyo 13. In 2015 Kageyama was selected for The Saison Foundation’s Junior Fellow grant.
