Times Journey Through a Room at Arts House – chelfitsch (Performance)

February 9, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - February 12, 2017 @ 5:00 pm AEDT

$30 - $45

This show is part of Asia TOPA at Arts House. Founded in 1997, chelfitsch is led by theatrical visionary Toshiki Okada, widely regarded as one of Japan’s most significant contemporary theatre makers and innovators.


Confined to a room, the ghost of a woman, her surviving husband and his new partner are attempting
to cope with the devastating effects of the 2011 earthquake in Japan.

Suspended in the days immediately following the disaster, the ghost embodies the fleeting feeling of euphoria post-Fukushima as dreams of a better future take hold.

Facing the reality of life six years on, the ghost’s husband and his lover are haunted by grief and the excruciating loss of hope and unrealised transformation.

Seamlessly layered with text, movement and images that all melt into each other, Time’s Journey Through a Room is performed in Japanese with English surtitles.


Date&Time: 9/10/11 Feb 7:30pm-, 12 Feb 5pm-

Duration: 75 minutes
