Toshiki Okada, the Japanese playwright, theatre director and founder of the company chelfitsch, is known for his fragmented idiosyncratic language and disjointed use of everyday gestures and movements. In his latest work ›Current Location‹ he depicts a society in the face of impending disaster torn between a desire for stability and a desire for change. In short episodes, Okada sketches the delicate relations between his characters as they try to deal with increasing states of anxiety and insecurity as well as loneliness in an individualistic society. Playing on different layers of narrative, Okada blurs the boundaries between truth and perception, reality and fiction.
