A young Tokyoite woman feels unsettled and lost. As she confronts the many discomforting thoughts of love, friends and family in her muddled life, her past, present and future begin to collide, spiraling her further and further from reality into a hallucinatory world. Dan Safer, celebrated theater director and founder of New York’s beloved downtown dance-theater company Witness Relocation, leads a cast of American actors in this absurd yet serious tale. Written by Kishida Kunio Award-winning playwright/director Shiro Maeda, who has come to be known for his illustrations of heavy issues through lightweight, everyday dialogue, Getting Lost represents the voice of Japan’s so-called “lost generation.” Playwright Maeda will join a post-performance Q&A.
