On the heels of overwhelming enthusiasm from New Yorkers for the English-language staged reading of "Girl X" at Japan Society (spring 2016), the Society proudly now presents the original Japanese production written and directed by Suguaru Yamamoto. Weaving a tapestry of complex emotions, the story unfolds through the dialogue and highly physical performance of two actors on stage and carefully crafted projections on screen mirroring a test messaging-obsessed contemporary society. Performed by Yamamoto's company Theater Collective HANCHU-YUEI, this unsettling comedy offers a glimpse into an anxiety-ridden post 3/11 Japan. In Japanese with English titles.
