Post Theater has received a research grant by the Senate for Culture of the City-State of Berlin – to explore yokai, Japanese ghosts / monsters / demons. Hiroko Tanahashi will lead the exploration of these “phenomenon spirits” and how they compare with Western concepts of demonic entities. The research includes an analysis of animism and how it relates to the acceptance of robots, AI and smart technologies. The research will contribute to the future project “Spookai” which will be premiere at LOFFT Leipzig in December 2020. We wish you all the best in this difficult time of the pandemic. Stay safe.
