Distant Observer:Tokyo/New York Correspondence
Written and Conceived by Takeshi Kawamura and John Jesurun

Distant Observer: Tokyo/New York Correspondence is a collaboration between Japanese playwright/director Takeshi Kawamura and American playwright/director John Jesurun. The project is conceived as a play written and directed in collaborative partnership by both artists. It comprises two established artists of the same generation, both with distinct voices and significant work, in a deep creative conversation across cultures.

Performed in English.

Takeshi Kawamura is one of Japan's leading playwrights and theatre makers with plays spanning three decades of contemporary theatre in Japan. His work explores the ways in which things are both remembered and forgotten socially, politically and culturally. He has written over 50 plays and received numerous awards including Japan's prestigious Kishida Kunio Drama Award.

John Jesurun has been a pioneering force in the use of media in live performance since his groundbreaking 1982 serial play Chang in a Void Moon. As a writer,director, and designer he has created unique forms of narrative that capture the dislocation and anxiety of contemporary life.
