Performance content

This work was prepared as the second installment following the freak show "Jiken Maru" on the theme of sermon verses.

I visited my mother and arrived at the top of 3,000 ri, where I saw myself as a baby crying in a tub placed in the temple grounds. The magic of a play can only be confirmed by the table that meets the

communicable and the impossible, the real and the imaginative. Or it is the audience itself, who is a third party, who can confirm it.

Organizations Overview

On July 31, 1983, the theater laboratory presided over by the late Shuji Terayama, Ceiling Shoshiki, was dissolved.
formed on August 1, 1983 by J. A. Caesar, who was responsible for the music and co-direction of most of the works during the Ceiling Shoshiki era, and 31 members of the Ceiling Theater Company. It was named "Theater Laboratory ◎ Universal Gravitation" after Shuji Terayama's words that "universal gravitation is the power of loneliness in which humans attract each other" (originally a quote from Shuntaro Tanikawa's "2 Billion Light Years of Solitude"). At the time of the launch of
, the activities of universal gravitation were different from the ceiling coffin, and by performing only new works, they inherited the style and sought their own methodology. However, as many other theater companies and organizations gradually began to perform Terayama's plays, there was concern that "Terayama theater"="theater with a ceiling that was described as a total theater" would cause a misunderstanding. In addition, in response to the audience's desire to see the play on the ceiling in a form close to the original, he began performing Terayama's works in order to convey the essence of "Terayama theater" to future generations. At the same time, he actively performs original works and continues to challenge the method of expression of "theater" with various approaches.
