“Everyone Fears The Night” (premiered in 2015) will be staged overseas at the XiXi International Arts Festival in Hangzhou, China. Featuring a large, diverse program of guest performances, this festival will mostly take place at the Arts Center in Westbrook, a commercial arts complex. As the first time that a Japanese theater company has participated in the festival, this will broaden the horizons of cultural exchange between China and Japan in the world of contemporary theater.
ZEITAKU BINBOU was launched in 2012. It is led by playwright, director and actress Yuri Yamada. Since 2014 the company has been developing the “uchi-project”, creating, rehearsing and performing shows inside private homes (“Uchi” means home in Japanese), where they create in its own way, transcending spaces and thinking flexibly without adhering to existing systems, through such works as Heisei Apartment (nominated for the 15th AAF Drama Awards), an ensemble drama that made use of an entire detached house, or a long-run performance that was performed four days a week aiming to “perform just as we live.”
