In a small harbor town in Japan, one by one, residents begin to lose their understanding of once familiar concepts such as "family," "ownership" and "freedom." These strange incidents are eventually linked to one resident, Shinji, who has been wandering around talking to his neighbors ever since his body and mind were taken over by an alien performing preparatory research on human beings before invading earth! Tomohiro Maekawa, rising star playwright and director/founder of Ikiume Theater Company in Tokyo, is recognized for his illustrations of human emotion through bizarre sci-fi and horror stories. Aya Ogawa, New York-based writer, director, performer, translator and founder of knife inc., will translate Maekawa's story and lead a cast of Americans in this staged reading. Playwright Tomohiro Maekawa will join the post-performance Q&A via live-streamed video broadcast from Japan.
