Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. New contemporary theatre from Japan depicts struggles anyone can experience beyond any differences. TENT portrays our complex feelings under being “an outsider” in various ways. Set in the deep mountain, getting lost leads to overnight stay in a camping tent. When words come out and bring conversations, reality starts breathing. Then one question will arise. What have you been hiding?

“Written, directed and performed by Yuuya Ishizone, there’s no doubt his genuine commitment to exploring the modern world, along with a writerly skill in slowly peeling away the layers of one man’s personal history in a way that’s understandable and intriguing… Ishizone is not one to miss out…” [Broadway Baby]

A simple setting with no fancy tricks or effects succeeded in giving us more room to explore beyond what he expressed in the play. What clever writing that was! [Audience]

My family enjoyed this performance very much. The production was not the usual comedy/musical I usually attend with my children but it did give my three teenage daughters plenty to talk about after the show. [Audience]
