The first new stage work in eight years by Dumb Type’s Shiro Takatani

The media artist Shiro Takatani is known for his work as a core member of the collective Dumb Type and for pioneering fresh possibilities in the performance scene. He now presents a highly anticipated new work for the ROHM Theatre Kyoto Repertory Premiere, the program of new productions ongoing since 2017.

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.
