HANCHU-YUEI is a theatre collective based in Tokyo, founded in 2007, and tours nationally and internationally.

Suguru Yamamoto writes and directs all productions for the theatre collective.

 

His works focus on the boundary of reality and unreality, and the story travels between each side of the boundary and questions the locations of un/reality.

Suguru’s creation starts at the topics that he comes up with, such as life and death, family, sense and words, collective society…and aims further to access universal ‘questions’.

His works have received attention not only in Japan but in other Asian countries for his unique way of rendition integrating the projected letters, photos, movies, colours, lights and shadows with the performers on the stage, and for his strong scripts, which often makes the audience question their ethical viewpoint and boundaries.

 

He was awarded the Best Original Script and the Best Play in Bangkok Theatre Festival 2014 for Girl X.

His work, Umaretenaikara Mada Shinenai (I can’t die without being born) was shortlisted for the Kishida Prize for Drama.

 

The constituent members of HANCHU-YUEI are six – Suguru Yamamoto (representative, playwright, stage director), Sachiro Nomoto, Kan Fukuhara (all the above actors), Kazuki Takakura (art director), Satoshi Kawaguchi (writer), and Momo Sakamoto (producer).

Theatre Collective HANCHU-YUEI

 2007年より、東京を拠点に海外での公演も行う演劇集団。すべての脚本と演出を山本卓卓が手がける。

 現実と物語の境界をみつめ、その行き来によりそれらの所在位置を問い直す。

生と死、感覚と言葉、集団社会、家族、など物語のクリエイションはその都度興味を持った対象からスタートし、

より遠くを目指し普遍的な「問い」へアクセスしてゆく。

 近年は舞台上に投写した文字・写真・色・光・影などの要素と俳優を組み合わせた独自の演出と、観客の倫理観を揺さぶる強度ある脚本で、日本国内のみならずアジア諸国からも注目を集め、マレーシア、タイ、インド、中国、シンガポール、ニューヨークで公演や共同制作も行う。

 『幼女X』でBangkok Theatre Festival 2014 最優秀脚本賞と最優秀作品賞を受賞。
