Six Memos for the Next Millennium—Movements

Tiny Alice Theatre, Tokyo

Six Memos for the Next Millennium – Movements is created by Director WEI Ying-chuan, in collaboration with Japanese composer and director Satoh Kashow, as a theatrical experiment and extension of the writer Italo Calvino’s famous work Six Memos for the Next Millennium. As Calvino meditates on the essentials of literature in his work, Wei and Satoh reconsider and explore the elements of literature in Movements. Focusing on the dialectical relationship between the visual, physical texts and the audio, musical structures of theatrical expressions, Movements aim to rediscover the necessary values and characteristics of theater today.
