A Tokyo-based theater group that has been active since 2007. The group looks at the boundaries between reality and storytelling, and questions their location by moving back and forth between them. The creation of stories about life and death, sensation and language, collective society, family, etc., starts with the subject of interest each time, and aims further afield to access universal "questions. With its unique direction that combines elements such as text, photographs, color, light, and shadow projected on the stage with actors, and a strong script that shakes the audience's sense of ethics, the company has performed and co-produced many productions in Asian countries and North America. Winner of the Bangkok Theatre Festival 2014 Best Screenplay Award and Best Production Award for "Juvenile X". He won the 66th Kishida Kunio Drama Award for "Banana Flowers Can Be Eaten".
