“The day I was born”

Tanpopo-No-Ye Art Center HANA

ABOUT

This work was born from the theater program of the Dandelion House Art Center HANA, which opened in 2004 in Nara Prefecture as Japan's first art center for people with disabilities. The story overlaps the experiences of the disabled members with the life of their former creative partner who suddenly passed away a few years ago. The drama, in which many anecdotes and memories resonate, and the performances, which seem to move between fiction and reality, accentuate the individuality of the members and sometimes fill the audience with laughter. This is a work that reminds us of the possibilities of theater.
