Theater | Rino DAIDOJI[This is a Great Great Autumn]
“This is a Great Great Autumn”
is
a story that draws out a nostalgic future which happens to human beings (women, but sometimes animals) when they fantasize about going to the autumn forest in the kitchen.

It was the end of September
A golden afternoon
Beside the pond in the middle of Kitanomaru Park in Tokyo
It was 4pm on a weekday
This was a view from 7 years ago
It was the beginning of autumn in the park, the weather was not too hot and not too cold
The sunset reflected on the surface of the water and shined in gold
I was lying there with a big seashell necklace around my neck
And in my eyes, there were the leaves of the tree in front of me, the sky, the atmosphere and the universe
Oh, it’s a very very delicious apple
Sometimes many unbelievable and dream-like things happen in reality

I bake scones in the kitchen
I got used to the baking so it only takes around 40 minutes
I sift the flour, crush the walnuts, add 20g of sugar and little bit of salt
When the scones are in the oven, I find a poem that my friend uploaded on Facebook on my iPhone
As I read the poem, I slowly move towards the autumn forest from the kitchen
The moist twigs and fallen leaves make a crispy sound under my feet
They seem to be making the sounds of my footsteps before I step forward

This is a great great autumn
Or a long long autumn night
Or something wicked this way comes in this great great autumn night.
