I'm Marjolein Roeleveld, theatremaker, living in Amsterdam.
In September me and Maartje Strijbis (photographer) will be in Tokyo for ten days (18sept-28sept) to do research for a performance that will play in 2016 inspired by one of Haruki Murakami's books. We are looking for a place to stay in an area in Tokyo.
The book is about a woman who hasn't slept for 17 days, but isn't tired at all. Suddenly she has a lot of time on her hands. What to do with it? I'm fascinated by the state the woman gets into, the grey area of sleeping and dreaming.
In Tokyo we're gonna look for places that are particularly alive during the night time. And try to experience the 24/7 time economy. This research is all on our own account so we don't have a lot of money. We hope with doing the research we will have some good input for an application to receive money from a fund to support the performance next year.
Now we are looking for a place to stay, residence, room etc for the ten days in September. We are very open to make a connection with artists or theatre's. And look for further cooperations.
