The first new stage work in eight years by Dumb Type’s Shiro Takatani
This is the first performing arts work created by Shiro Takatani as a solo artist since ST/LL in 2015. The work explores the theme of liminal space: the extraordinary within the ordinary, the strange realm where two contrasting elements both coexist at the same time. Rooted in the interrelationality of art, science, and technology, this is a serene, beautiful, and dramatic stage work that deftly transcends the border between the visual and performing arts.
