In 2012, chelfitsch and Toshiki Okada opened up a new and significant chapter in their careers. The Great East Japan Earthquake that struck on March 11, 2011 and the ensuing nuclear catastrophe induced sweeping changes in Japanese society. Okada's very attitude toward theater changed under this influence and is unmistakably reflected in this work. Ominous clouds and rumors that the village is doomed. Would you believe these rumors or not? And would you change under this circumstance or not? Incorporating touches reminiscent of science fiction, the work tells, in a matter-of-fact tone, the story ,of seven women who live in "the village" and their different worries, conflicts, convictions ,and hopes.
