This work from the two-year-old theater project Gettingontheflyingsaucerists took a close-up look at language and words. While incorporating a multi-faceted approach to language, for example presenting words by writer Kohei Kasai as stage design elements, and weaving poems created by project members in workshops given by poet Ryouta Yamada into the performance, this was theater searching for ideas on how to live better, expressed through the story of characters wandering aimlessly around the streets.
