In this public space performance the performers evoke dream worlds, layering them upon ordinary urban space. This work invites audiences to step into the daydream that unfolds before their eyes. Creating an intensely physical performance trail, inspired by the magical stories of Haruki Murakami, the work is adapted to the local context in each new city. In each version of Murikamification a diverse and curious audience is overwhelmed by surprising scenery in the streets of the(ir own) city.
Murikamification will make it’s US debut as part of the EQT Bridge Theater Series and EQT Children’s Theater Festival in Pittsburgh, PA in May 2019.
