KENJI AND AI was translated into Japanese by Masanori with edits by Yuji Nema. Yuji Nema also performed in the short play as Kenji Miyazaki alongside Shiho Ishigaki who played his younger sister Ai Miyazaki. The story, for those who cannot understand Japanese, is about two siblings who have relocated to the Southern Ryukyu Islands (Okinawa) to live with a distant relative after their entire family went missing during the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and subsequent tsunami that followed. In the play, they address the trauma of their loss and hopes for their future, while trying to see the beauty in nature despite having seen its destructive side.
I'm going to put up a subtitled version of the video in English soon for those who want to have the original text available while watching the movie.
I will also post clips from the other plays we presented that day. They should be up by this weekend.
