From the Berlin-based international artist collective post theater, founded by the inventive team of Japanese media artist Hiroko Tanahashi and director Max Schumacher, comes an interactive performance that melds live generated projections, dance, text and real food, captivating all five senses. Based on the epic journey of the found­ers of Sony Corporation, Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka, and their dream of forming an internationally successful consumer electronics company, heavenly BENTO is a performance full of images in the round on a raised stage that also functions as a pro­jection surface. An exploration of friendship, ambition and the boundless human imagination, heavenly BENTO is a dazzling display of human and technological expression.
