Desire and Dramaturgy The art of Daisuke Miura, rising star on today’s theater scene
Daisuke Miura (Potsudo-ru)
Playwright and director Daisuke Miura is the leader of the theater unit “Potsudo-ru” that is causing a sensation on the Japanese theater scene today with its plays that explore the sex industry as a revealing phenomenon of contemporary Japanese society and the state of young people today. How did Miura come to the extreme methods he uses to get live, straight reactions out of the actors and bring to the stage such real representations of human relations, people’s complexes and sexual desire, and what are his intentions in doing so? In this interview we seek the essences of the art of Miura, a man who refers to himself as a child of the TV drama generation.
