Joining the American-British invasion of Iraq in 2003 was Japan’s first military engagement since WWII. Historic peace marches took place in Tokyo, and many of the protesters were young people. In Five Days in March, a number of characters voice their deeply personal concerns. The image they sketch of their personal, everyday lives in Tokyo stands in sharp contrast to their public participation in the demonstrations. In this adaptation of his original 2007 creation, Toshiki Okada sketches a generation of young people who have lost their way.

El Conde de Torrefiel is one of the recent revelations at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts. The duo creates visual performances in which hyper-realistic tableaux are juxtaposed with incisive texts – a mix of history, current affairs, and futurism. LA PLAZA treats the stage as a square: a public space in which banal, everyday activities in today’s Europe occur, but where disquieting scenes of the future also play out.
