Running through May 17 we’re producing a theater project with public rehearsals, discussions, film screenings, and performances that take the work of the Japanese dramatist, poet, photographer and filmmaker Terayama Shuji (1935-1983) as their cue.

With Michael Gempart, Denise Hasler, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Tobias Madison, Franz-Xaver Mayr, Fabian Müller, Madlaina Peer, Elia Schwaller, Jan Vorisek and Barbara Weber

The theater play La Marie-Vision originated in 1969 when Terayama, who had staged only a few plays at the time, met the young actor Akihiro Miwa – a key figure of the queer and transvestite scene of Shibuya, Tokyo – and was so charmed that he assigned him a leading role in his new play. The text however only resulted from continuous collective improvisation. Hence La Marie-Vison also represents the practice of Terayama and his troupe Tenjo Sajiki: the broadening of audiences by settling into a new scene in order to open it up for new contents and topics, and for the confusion of actors and roles, of fiction and life.
