„This performance enlightens the shadows it casts ahead.“

„Fukushima, my love“ artistically transports knowledge, a sense and a grasp of Fukushima und and the Japanese culure.

“The radiation ultimately still remains unbelievable and devastatingly invisible in this two-hour show. But the archaeological approach to the glowing core of the disaster performed by the guests  from Hamburg provided a very considerable awareness about the fatal consequences. “
Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, 04.10.2013

1.5 years after the threefold disaster, one member of the COSTA COMPAGNIE traveled to Fukushima Prefecture and throughout Japan. He returned with a backpack full of interviews, sounds and video images. In FUKUSHIMA, MY LOVE the company pursues the question whether it is possible to reduce the spatial, temporal and cultural distance to the events of the disaster that also resulted in Germany’s departure from nuclear power. Based on 35 interviews and Japanese myths, three dancers, two actors, one musician and one video-artist artistically approached the incomprehensible in a performative essay, while asking: What is the human in the face of disaster?
