This production is a reworking of “PIPE DREAM” and “GOOD WAR,” which were staged in 2019 and 2021.
The work was created by interviewing a variety of people on the themes of “the ideal way to die” and “then and conflict” and using what was said in the interviews. Words, bodies, and history from the past created and passed on by people; distance and relationships between people in future; since then, and from then on. This is a free-access, installation-style theatrical work built around the past and the future.
