In the spring of 2011, an 8.6 earthquake rattled the coastline of Northern Japan. The earthquake triggered a tsunami that managed to span the Pacific Ocean, soaking the coastal towns of Hawaii and pulling on the moorings of boats in California, and damaged the Fukushima Power Plant in Japan. The owners of the power plant issued a plea to their employees to come to work if they were willing – an attempt to keep this potential disaster at bay – and expose themselves to radiation in the process. In each of the three locations, characters follow the news report about the events in Japan, as well as do their best to keep contact with one another. In turn, they call, text and video-conference with each other, with technologies reflected onstage via projections and live video feeds. Through their various interactions in the aftermath of the tsunami, each character confronts questions of responsibility to country and humanity, self-identity, and how we define home. In the end, each tries in their own way to contribute something that makes their post-tsunami world a little bit better. Will achieves this most directly in his animation project, which goes “viral”, spreading hope for the future of Japan, and indeed the world.
