    Auto Da Fe

    A New Play by Masataka Matsuda Directed by Josh Fox English translation by Kameron Steele & Shigeki Morii

    How often does your world turn upside down? One of New York's most innovative and exciting theater companies stages one of Japan's most renowned playwrights of this generation. International WOW Company/Josh Fox bring you Masataka Matsuda's AUTO DAFE presented by Baruch Performing Arts Center and International WOW Company. You've been fighting a war for more than a decade, you come home and your country is unrecognizable. Your memories blur and your life and culture swirl in a haze . . .

    AUTO DA FE is Matsuda Masataka’s breathtakingly poetic new work �" a soldier named Odysseus A returns from war to find the emotional and physical landscape of his home utterly altered and unrecognizable. The play originally produced in Kyoto and Tokyo, Japan, to much popular and critical acclaim, is a dreamscape of collective amnesia, life during wartime, the self-conscious erasure of history and national identity, and a search for meaning and beauty.

    Josh Fox, and his International WOW Company, renowned for their daring audience immersion, and their physical, explosively visual, epic theatrical style, has created a powerful spectacle like never before. With an international cast from the United States, Japan, Australia, Spain and the Philippines and an ensemble of thirty performer/dancers, AUTO DA FE is a thrilling, moving international collaboration of gripping immediacy.
