What we do

Freud's Last Session -Freud vs. Lewis-

  • Organization : DULL-COLORED POP
  • Section : In Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Theater


This is the first performance of this translation. As the world is engulfed in the flames of World War II, C.S. Lewis, author of “The Chronicles of Narnia,” visits the home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. The two begin a theological debate as air raid sirens resound in the distance. Both puts their hearts and souls into defending their very-different positions. What if these two men, who lived in the same era, had met? This is a work of rare intellectual curiosity created with a prodigious imagination.

Author: Mark St. Germain / Translation and Direction: Kenichi Tani / Actors: Kanji Ishimaru, Katsumi Kiba


DULL-COLORED POP was formed in November 2005 with a performance of Tokyo #7 Waste Processing Facility’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The members were the Meiji University Literature Department’s drama majors and the Meiji University Theatre Circle “Crazy House.” Since then, it has performed plays twice a year. Leader and writer/director Kenichi Tani has made it his goal to present serious literary works from a modern pop culture perspective. The group offers a unique blend of every kind of drama, from modern to traditional, as well as tragedy, comedies, theater of the absurd, foreign works and musicals. Their goal is to become a mainstream theater company with a unique presence, which breaks the framework of the concept of existing theater art.
