Nekaa Lab / Sachiyo Takahashi
Inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s writings, sheep #1 is the adventure of a sheep in search of the meaning of life. The performance is in the style of Microscopic Live Cinema-Theatre, where the performer manipulates small characters who are magnified with a video camera and projector. This creates an intimate dream-like experience by combining cinematic presentation and live operation. An abstract storytelling, sheep #1 is told without spoken words, accompanied by Electroacoustic music and a live musician.

A Song to Sail On
Drama of Works
When the life of a prominent Armenian composer is threatened by the impending Ottoman forces, Grikor Suni is forced to choose between finding the family he has built or certain death. Although his acclaim gives him certain stature, all is washed away as bloodshed tears through the peasantry and the elite. Inspired by the real life of Grikor Suni and the plight of all persecuted peoples then and now, this piece departs from the biographical realities of one man’s life to explore the possible outcomes of a life torn apart by war and the choices one must make at a moment’s notice.
