Lies/Harmony

Formerly Between Lies and Harmony
10-45min

Despite many sacrifices and lies, the harmony and image of Japan has been saved after the catastrophe of Fukushima. But now, do you live with harmony or with truth? Premiered at an anti-nuclear demonstration in Berlin, the piece has continually been updated into theater versions with advice from radiation specialists, performances in Fukushima and visits into the restricted areas near the radiating power plant. A body is left standing on an island made of lies peeled off… A contemporary dance protest piece devised of satirical theater and high-level physical performance.

Performed in:

BERLIN - HAU1, WDK, IPPNW (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) Conference, .ausgestrahlt, Sayonara Nukes Berlin Demo

TOKYO - NOddIN 3rd Exhibition, CSRP (Citizen-Scientist International Symposium on Radiation Protection), Happy Island Festival Fukushima 2015, Homes of Fukushima residents, TPAM 2017

BEIJING - Tsinghua University

The piece is optimal with an environment with lights and a projector, but a version without any technicality is also possible.
