    Super Premium Soft Double Vanilla Rich



    LIFT returned to artsdepot with a brand-new work by Japan’s most exciting theatre director, Toshiki Okada. Set in a supermarket, Super Premium … took a darkly humorous glance at Japanese consumerism through slacker language, dreamlike movement and a striking soundscape of J-pop and J. S. Bach.

    Working with his company, chelfitsch, Okada is celebrated as a chronicler of Japan’s Lost Generation, the young people coming of age as their economy spiralled into decline. His theatre captures their unease, selfcentredness and cynicism so astutely that his characters needed no translation for a London audience.



    Presented by LIFT and artsdepot. Commissioned by Theater der Welt. A House on Fire co-production with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union. Supported by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, The Japan Foundation and The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation. Images:Dieter Hartwig, Hiroshisa Koike.
