Founded on January 1st, 2006, this troupe performs the plays of Nakayashiki Norihito. They emphasize the fictionality of their plays, and specialize in drawing out sardonic laughter from their audience through highly fictional methods of speaking and acting that satirize the foibles of human society. In addition to tours inside Japan, they’ve also performed overseas in both joint and solo performances through the International Drama Collaboration Project. They have also performed plays like Artist in Residence, Playgoing with Children Project, and as part of their Shakespeare Reborn series, Nyotai Shakespeare.
