Design Statement

The story deals with a fictional love triangle between a Japanese poet, Takuboku Ishikawa (1886-1912), and two characters conjured up by Mitani — Ishikawa’s best friend, Tetsu, and Ishikawa’s lover, Tomi.
First of all , the play begins in Morioka, in front of a monument commemorating the town’s most famous celebrity, Takuboku......

Since the content of the performance was interspersed between dramatic and realism appearances, the form of light mainly based on the timeline of the story composition. In the beginning of the play, the atmosphere of the Japanese inn was well established; along with the plot of the play, the non-realism surrounding will gradually be revealed. In the second half of the story, the dramatic of the stage structure was displayed through the light. After all, our design team attempted to display the nature of human, and let the audience become detectives, to deduce what might have really happened.
