Toshiki Okada / chelfitsch, Dai Fujikura, Klangforum Wien リビングルームのメタモルフォーシス Metamorphosis of a Living Room
At the invitation of the Wiener Festwochen, director Toshiki Okada and composer Dai Fujikura, both world-renowned in their respective disciplines, are working together for the first time, exploring a new form of musical theatre. In it, they pursue the idea of allowing the spoken language and music to take to the stage as independent and idiosyncratic protagonists. For "Metamorphosis of a Living Room", six Japanese actors from Okada’s company and seven musicians of the Klangforum Wien share the stage. They tell the story of a family facing eviction. But while this problem can be solved – there is, after all, such a thing as Tenancy Law – a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions soon looms, one that cannot be solved with any hotline nor with any man-made ideas. Little by little, the music and scenic actions blend together, opening possibilities for the emergence of an entirely new experience. All manner of narration, the entire anthropocentric world, dissolve in sound.
