HOW TO BUY TICKETS

Based on the performance piece entitled The House of Cyan (2012), created by “unit Cyan”, the private unit of Sawako Iseki and Jo Kanamori, The House of Spirit explores the universal theme of love and death. While the four men (one actor, played by Akihito Okuno and three dancers Yuki Yamada, Kenta Kojiri and Kanamori) represent the multifaceted love of men, the woman, played by Iseki, playing the four roles of a doll, a dancer, a wife, a woman who fails to become a mother, represents the solitude of the female love. As the story develops, the four men and the four women reveal their roles as a metaphor of the death throughout the piece. Is it the men or the woman who are dead? Amidst the endless reincarnation without a beginning or an end, their souls drift on between the dream and the illusion in a lonely pursuit of love.
