On Sunday, 15 March (6 pm) Pink Mama Theatre will present Sławek Bendrat’s piece Pinku Chirashi at Tanzhaus Zürich as part of zürich moves!. The festival also features Keith Hennessy, Jeremy Wade, Jan Martens, and Simone Aughterlony, among others.

 

“Pinku Chirashi” is a Japanese term for leaflets advertising erotic services. The piece is inspired by a new trend occurring in Japan, especially in the country’s biggest cities. The youngest generation are so absorbed in the rat race that they cannot fit a private life in their tight schedules. Often they do nothing besides working and having a short night’s sleep. They engage in online love, computer games, or profess affection for erotic gadgets depicting cartoon characters. Sometimes the line between the outside world and virtual reality becomes blurred and the young Japanese start identifying with the plastic objects of their desires. The solo Pinku Chrashi is a tale of loneliness in an artificial cyber world where traditional perceptions of male and female roles prevail. The piece was developed during a residency in Club Żak in Gdańsk (2010) and received an award of the Baltic Movement Contest.
