Profile

Busukai
A theatrical unit formed in 2010 by playwright and director Peyounne Maki. The troupe continually produces works that channel the alternating joys and sorrows of women on the edge into a cynical humor that exhibits a uniquely female mix of intransigence and flexibility, all the while revealing the true state of contemporary Japan.
