After Japan’s great earthquake of 2011, a tsunami almost entirely demolished the region around the city of Rikuzentakata and thousands died. The city is now undergoing immense reconstruction to elevate the area as a countermeasure against future tsunami waves. Using local rocks to raise the land, however, has led to severe damage to surrounding mountains. In Eraser Mountain, Japanese director Toshiki Okada and visual artist Teppei Kaneuji question this human-centric approach to the problem and ask us to reimagine the relationships between people, objects, and the world.

Performed in Japanese with English supertitles. Recommended for ages 16+. Run time: 2 hours, 10 minutes
Tickets: $35-$50 orchestra seating, $35 parterre seating

Tickets can be purchased online at this link or in person at the Box Office (566 LaGuardia Pl)
