What would you save from a burning house? How would you cope with a sudden loss of a roof over your head, your home? How boring is it to be homeless?

A homeless man and a demon, two samurai warriors, two clowns, two buto dancers, two geishas. Human figures and other creatures emerge from a blend of Japanese folk tales and legends, moving silently to the sounds of a Koto and footsteps of geta. As many masks you have, as many times are you human, even if it’s just a twisted shadow of his. Behold the costumes, as they switch faster than the speed of a whipping bokken, with the precision of a kata and as efficient as urea fertilization. Reeds grow, hair grows, nails grow. But a homeless man is like a snail - he wraps up all his belongings and disappears without a trace. Since he has no address, we could never find him again. 

Musaši Entertainment Company is expanding from the world of puppet theater to the most prominent theatres of the alternative scene and ”indecently” builds upon the legacy of mime theater. The still-up-and-coming creative duo Adam Páník and Tereza Havlová invited Matěj Šumbera and Veronika Traburová to explore their collaborative vision influenced by the Miskatonic University
