Japan’s hikikomori phenomenon affects teenagers and young adults. Their fear of confronting the realities of society turns them into shut-ins. Joris Mathieu studies this communication problem on three different levels, offering one version for children, teenagers, and grownups. So this is a show for families.

The show

Nils is a young boy going through a difficult phase at school, in his relationships with others, and in society in general. One day, he rushes in from school, slams his bedroom door, and won’t come out. His parents are stunned. Why did he rush into his bedroom? They don’t knock at the door, instead they pick up something he tossed on the living room table. In an effort to understand, they will tame his universe saturated with technologies and images.

After a critically acclaimed creation in early 2016, fabulist Joris Mathieu is back with Hikikomori – The Refuge. Using a unique immersive set, audience members (children, teens, adults) put on audio headsets and hear three different versions of the same story. After the show, they share the details. It’s a splendid metaphor of today’s world and our collective isolation. Hikikomori offers us a new form of theater – participative and unifying.
