Summary: 'A Shibuya saxophone party': Number 10 of '24 views of an inkstain on the tatami', a guided audio tour of Japan in which the familiar and the strange are twisted by an irritable postcard writer, a passionless guidebook and a 'voice in the head'. Under the flyover at Shibuya three boys practise their saxophone riffs. As the guidebook explains, 'Booya' is not only the steel ball capital of the world but the meeting place for 'gang girls' with white lipstick and orange hair. Written and performed by Tony Barrell.
Summary: 'Dead letters': The fantastic world of the Dead Letter Office is explored by this master magician of art performance. Bizarre and haunting characters inhabit a world of undelivered feeling and unrealised emotions. Written and performed by Gregory Whitehead (USA).
