JAPAN SOCIETY COMMISSION
Get a rare look behind the scenes of Japan Society’s landmarked building in Our Planet, our newly-commissioned theater production that whisks the audience through offices, gallery rooms, hidden stairwells and backstage areas. Directed by Alec Duffy, founder of the OBIE Award-winning company Hoi Polloi, this acclaimed play by young theater phenom Yukio Shiba juxtaposes the everyday life of an ordinary family with the galactic events of the earth’s birth and death. Duffy’s team includes OBIE-winning scenic designer Mimi Lien, costume designer Becky Lasky, lighting designer Jiyoun Chang, composer and sound designer Tei Blow, Japanese motion graphics master Nobuyuki Hanabusa and actors Julian Rozzell, Jr. and Jenny Seastone Stern. Performed in English.
