Yaneura Heights Tour “SENSE OF DISTANCE (reprise)” & “NO EXIT” Tokyo

  • Organization : Yaneura Heights
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Theater


This work was the first restaging for Yaneura Heights. Original plans had to be changed due to COVID-19, such as one performer having to appear remotely. Performing in “SENSE OF DISTANCE (reprise)” were Aoshi Miura and Yu Watanabe. The listed performers for “NO EXIT” were Shun Satoh, Takahiro Takikoshi, Sae Miyakawa and Kana Muraoka. The online post-performance talk and later streaming of the performances were both well-received. Filming and editing of “SENSE OF DISTANCE (reprise)” was done by filmmaker Haruka Komori, with playwright/director Rena Miyazaki doing the editing for “NO EXIT.”


Yaneura Heights
Theater company founded in Sendai in 2013 with Daichi Nakamura as director. In 2018 the company relocated to Tokyo. The purpose of the company is to produce “useful theater” that people need to survive, through a process of discussion between the small number of members followed by repeated trials and experiments. Current members comprise Daichi Nakamura, Kana Muraoka and Harutaka Watanabe.
Eventually, they want to build a house.
