Realism brought to stage...

sometimes loneliness might not necessarily lead you to tears....

Hotaru is a poignant drama following several characters on a search for connection and compassion in contemporary universal society. It spins the story of seven characters - two lovers in a relationship they don't want to be in, a couple slowly drifting apart, a student in search of herself, an office boy who longs to have his best friend's life and a deluded businessman who just wants some fun and adventure. Each carries with them a different story to tell. Despite the overwhelming emotions they feel deep inside they struggle to put it to words. Their emotions burst into light and extinguish, seemingly at random just like the magical insects they go in search for.
This play promises a different kind of theatrical experience. The actors do not communicate with the audience directly. It will almost be as if they are eavesdropping in a private conversation. And while the characters do not display any big action or emotions, the audience will still be able to connect with the characters. Part of this acting technique is similar to the Noh method. What you see and what you feel may very well be two different things altogether.
