“A (micro) history of the world economics, danced,” a unique collaboration of professional and amateur actors that caused an uproar when it was first staged in France in January, will be showcased at theaters in Shizuoka and Miyazaki, featuring locals there as cast members.

The theatrical piece, put together by Pascal Rambert, director of the Theatre de Gennevilliers, explores a three-year relationship between the French theater and Japanese dramatists. Rambert has decided to use the global economic crisis as a theme after seeing a photograph of a black family who had just lost their home due to the subprime mortgage crisis in the United States.
