Approaching a new type of theater that reciprocates with reality
Ryo Ikeda of the digital-native generation
Ryo Ikeda (born 1992) is the playwright and director of “Yumei,” who originally majored in sculpture at an art university and also works on stage design. He has presented works such as Ototoi (premiere: 2017), which is based on his own experience of bullying, and Aka (premiere: 2018), which is a dramatization of his own family story in which his own father appeared as an actor. What is Ikeda’s desire to use his own experiences and the voices of people around him who want to talk about himself as a starting point, and to explore a new type of theater creation that reciprocates with reality?
