In the context of the "Ancient Shinto" that Japanese believe in, the most ideal form of communication is the concept of emptiness, a space which I choose is similar to “しろ” as the rehearsal scene, while to throw out this empty “container”, that everyone quickly processed the information they got in this container, and achieved the purpose of non-word interflow since each can communicate without words.
In the early stage, we conducted ten theater workshops together with the publicly recruited local people to explore topics related to “art”, “lonely feeling” and “life” in real life, and guided the participants back to the individual's pure self. The exchanges between each other are introspective, and we look forward to achieving the best communication in this “しろ” rehearsal space and creating new collective memories and common experiences.
The work is constructed and directed by me, and the participants created the work together with their texts and performances. In such a "container", the "performance" of the people within the established social relationship is actually an "ideal way of communication" and a secondary construction of social relations.
