Magcal Theater provides a place where people can freely present and disseminate information related to performing arts such as drama, dance, and music, with the aim of nurturing cultural and artistic talent. In October, a unit of two young people, “Waruie”, will appear.
“Waruie” is a theater unit founded by actor, playwright, and director Hiroshi Oshima, who presides over “Chili Actors,” and actor Ichihara Ippei, who belongs to “G/9 Project Office.” This is the third performance since our founding in 2016, and we will be performing ``Touchedake'' by Kengo Minamide, which won the 22nd Dramatists Association New Play Award. We asked Mr. Oshima, who is in charge of the production, about the highlights and more.

What is the concept of “Warujie”?

Based on the concept of ``doing what you want to do with the people you want to do,'' we are basically taking ready-made scripts. One of the reasons for that is that I want to face the work as an actor. Additionally, as a director, I would like to direct a work written by someone other than myself.

What kind of work is “Just Touched”?

There are 7 characters. It's an omnibus of three stories, each about 20 minutes long, telling the stories of people who have a slight relationship with each other. It's a story that seems to be happening in the next room, in a world connected to everyday life, so there aren't any fanciful developments or flashy productions. I think it's interesting to see small differences in experience or gaps in perception develop in unexpected directions.

What was the point in choosing this work?

Because it's funny (lol). That's why we have to make sure that when we perform, people won't say, ``It's more interesting if you read it.''
I didn't know the writer Minamide well enough to be ``acquainted'' with him, but I've always thought that he writes wonderful works. When I read this work when I heard that it had won the Dramatists Association Newcomer Play Award, I honestly thought it was great.

What are the challenges of performing works by people other than yourself?

Just because we perform a ready-made play, we don't have to be conscious of creating an original production. If you start thinking about things like, ``Let's change something because the original was like this,'' it gets complicated. The important thing is to work together with the actors on stage to create something based on what can be gleaned from the script. This work is really interesting, so I'm sure it'll be even more interesting if it's put on stage.

What are the highlights of this performance?

I believe this is a work that conveys the charm of theater in a straightforward manner without embellishing it.
I also think of "Waruie" as an actor-based organization, and this time too we had a group of attractive actors. So I have a very strong feeling, ``Look at these actors!'' My challenge as a director is to make these attractive actors shine even more attractively. Please take a look at the performances and find your favorite actor!
