PHILOSOPHY TIME is a workshop in which participants enjoy a dialogue about the theme of an artwork with a variety of people, and discuss it in depth.

"This time, we will discuss about "war" with the theme of "Five Days in March Re-creation" by the theater company chelfitsch.
The play depicts the daily lives of young people in Tokyo over a period of five days, including the day in March 2003 when the U.S. military began bombing Iraq. What were we thinking and how were we spending our time when Russian troops began their invasion of Ukraine in February of this year?

The guest speaker will be Leon Kou Yonekawa, an actor in the production, and a Japanese-English interpreter will join us to discuss with non-native speakers of Japanese.
Why don't you enjoy your moyamoya(something doesn't feel right) in the dialogue?"
