There was an invisible wall, built along the shore. Crowds of people began to gather there, at the foot of the wall. A tightrope walker who cannot be seen by the naked eye. A woman searching for her invisible lover. A tourist who makes a snow globes. A child who cannot see the future, born to a minotaur and a cow with a human face. “I want to become an edge. Like the edge on the brim of a straw hat, or the edge on the frame of a painting that Lupin would steal, or the edge on the lip of a cup, or the edge of despair.” The story of the invisible wall unfolds tonight.
lolo is a theater company headed by playwright and director Naoyuki Miura. His work portrays encounters (romantic and otherwise) between people and objects that are fundamentally alien to each other, removed from their existing network of relationships. His plays are also known for sampling and remixing modern and classical pop culture from around the globe. In 2015, Miura began the “Anyone, Anytime High” project. By writing and staging scripts that conform to Japan’s high school theater competition rules and allowing students to perform them for free, he aims to breathe new life into the high school theater scene. Major works include Handsome Daigo (2015) and Scattered(2019).
