  • Organization : Offton
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo

A stage work performed after a two-year creative period by troupe members recruited under the condition that their physical and mental health was irrelevant to the project. With its setting of a world in which the motif of disease or illness as developed through interaction and exchange with troupe members is allegorized by the five species of vampires, werewolves, artificial humans, ghosts, and humans, and based on the story of the classic play “Hamlet,” “Night Dominant” was presented as a story about the boundaries between normal and abnormal, illness and health, posing questions about contemporary recognition of illness from the viewpoint of the work as well as the project.

Formed in 2011 by Kouki Tokuchi, Offton’s recent productions have primarily been themed around classical drama including Greek tragedy and Shakespeare.
The troupe is characterized by text which blends the essential worldview of classical plays with overtones of contemporary social problems and pop culture. Offton’s style is to actively pose questions to the audience about the challenges surrounding modern people by consciously creating factual boundaries between reality and fiction.
