IRUKA is a man’s journey between two opposite poles, such as ying and yang, or plus and minus. As the man travels back and forth between those poles, his schizophrenic state and distorted sense of time are spellbindingly revealed. Translated as “Are you here?” the title IRUKA questions the presence of the man onstage. July 13, 1987 is an experiment in “violence” for two men: Two performers carry out violent actions as their task.
