heavenly BENTO

heavenly BENTO

This is the U.S. premiere of heavenly BENTO, an interactive performance that engages all five senses by combining live-generated projections, dance, text, and real food. From the Berlin-based international artist collective post theater, this work was created collaboratively by Japanese media artist Hiroko Tanahashi and director Max Schumacher, both co-artistic directors of post theater.heavenly BENTO is based on the epic journey of the founders of Sony Corporation, Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka, and their dream of forming an internationally successful consumer electronics company amidst the reconstruction of Japan post-World War II. This production transforms Japan Society's proscenium theater into a raised boxing-ring-as-boardroom stage, with Morita and Ibuka's quest around the world depicted in the round with special tiered ticketing offering "Board Room," "Executive," and regular seating. Scenes, dance, music, technology, and projections are intricately layered on the unique raised playing space as the astonishing work unfolds to the finale, when the audience is invited to literally eat the projection surface before them. An exploration of friendship, ambition, and the boundless imagination, heavenly BENTO is a dazzling display of human and technological expression.
