“A close and far place”

SPAC Inclusive theatre

Reaching for each other’s hands, and feeling with your eyes, ears, and heart;
This is a project to offer a theater experience to all people —the disabled and non-disabled alike—
from infants to the elderly.




“A close and far place”

Conception, direction, and scenography:

Music: TANAKAWA Hiroko
Once you pass through the entrance gate, you will enter a world inside a looking glass.
There are some strange people right in front of you. Is this real, or is it in your dreams?
You will travel through an imaginary world that spreads out in your mind. In your imagination, you can go to places you do not know and encounter things you have never seen before. Let’s explore such world together, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
