International Black Box Festival 2016:
"Asagao" (Japan)
03.11.2016 - 06.11.2016

Written and performed by playwright Tsukuda Norihiko of Shed Skin
A tale of a strange marriage full of unexpected twists

After working away from home for six months, a husband returns, only to find that the house is empty. Last night, he was still speaking to his wife on the phone. An estate agent appears all of a sudden, revealing a secret in the process. The husband is left in even greater confusion. The wall and the ceiling are overgrown with morning glory vines, suggesting that the house has been left vacant for a while. Is his wife whom he hasn’t seen for a long time still in the house, or is she gone for good?

Asagao is a new work created by playwright Tsukuda Norihiko for International Black Box Festival 2016. Time, space and fragments of events cross over each other; underneath the sharp sarcasm behind a series of absurd events is a lingering sense of helplessness.
