Artist's Statement:

I have 32 minutes and 6 seconds as a tentative duration for the performance. But of course, this is just a mere number. It is a counting down ten to zero, but that's not how we use them. I'd like to have talks with the women employee and part-time job worker at Tokyo Wonder Site, and this might influence the final scenario drastically. Our goal is not completing a stage set (never it was), it could be weird if it will function as a painting at the entrance. We will work with an emphasis on "different mode of emotions" ...
