Masashi Nomura/Akira Takayama


These Five Years

Mousonturm Studio 2


Like conceptual artist and theatre maker Akira Takayama, author and director Toshiki Okada is also one of the most demanding protagonists of Japanese contemporary theatre. For both, the social processes that took place in the wake of the devastating earthquake and nuclear catastrophe of 2011, had substantial effects on their artist concepts. In his lecture, Japanese dramaturge and theatre producer Masashi Nomura traces these social and aesthetic shifts and in the process gives insights into the methodologies of both artists.
