Toshiki Okada We Are the Undamaged Others
Toshiki Okada and his company chelfitsch pursue their chronicle of Japan’s contemporary life through intimate, seemingly ordinary stories. The couple in this new piece shows all signs of happiness, but their conversation betrays a deep anxiety. The actors’ moves are minutely choreographed, testifying to the way very simple acts can force us to consider highly theoretical questions.
