JIYU Gekijo-Freedom Theatre
[from Tottori, Japan]

People with disabilities and people without disabilities. There is often an invisible line drawn to separate them. However, such a line and barriers are completely meaningless. We make theatre together, show our existence through theatre, and talk about our wishes and inconveniences in our own words. Furthermore, as people living in the same time and place, we share the pain and joy of life, getting the audience involved. That is what the JIYU Gekijo-Freedom Theatre is. This year’s production will focus on the theme of “love” and “discrimination”, using the timeless classic Romeo and Juliet as the basis for a new 2021 production that will go off on a tangent and explore the essence of the matter. We hope you will take the time to enjoy the diverse richness and uniqueness of each individual hidden behind the label of “disability”.
