This project is an artistic inquiry into the environment created by our modern civilization. Our little theatrical sketches are an open reflection on some of the main functional elements that constitute this environment, and on the logic behind some of its common routine.
Our setting is Japan, and that is not without a reason.
In terms of technological development, infrastructure, social welfare systems Japan may be considered one of the most progressive countries in the world. In many ways it presents a favorable example for the most developed countries to follow. This is also why even very particular forms and shapes that civilization acquires in Japan can be seen as symptomatic in a global sense: they are all related to essential trends that take effect all around the world in one way or other. Japan's scenarios may be unique in the details, but with certain adjustments it's not all too hard to project them on the situation of many other countries.
Apart from thinking Japan to be a particularly colorful "civilization's case", simply being foreigners played a key role in the inception of this project. One is more susceptible of noticing peculiarities in the most common of things when they are a stranger to their surroundings, and are conditioned to look at everything around as alien.
Common things are things we don't easily subject to critical reflection. We are suggesting to take an estranged look at the environment that we interact with every day, as if it was something alien.
