チェルフィッチュ フリータイム

ある契約社員の女性がファミレスで毎日の出勤前に過ごす、ささやかで、大切でちょっと異様な30分の「フリータイム」を描く。チェルフィッチュは本作で、これまでに継続的に行われてきた演劇的ナラティブへの模索を、さらなる抽象へ向けて加速させた。
KUNSTENFESTIVALDESARTS(ブリュッセル)、Wiener Festwochen(ウィーン)、Festival D'automne(パリ)による初めての国際共同制作作品。今話されているのは、現実に起こっている出来事なのか、それとも彼女の妄想、あるいは彼女についての憶測なのか?しゃべっているのは、誰なのか?その人は存在するのか?現代の、日本の、この管理社会における自由を問う意欲作。

Chelfitsch Freetime

One early summer morning. A woman is sitting at a table in a family restaurant. She spends half an hour, which she considers as her "free time," here almost every morning before going to work. She always has a notebook open in front of her in which she has been seen to write something. Sometimes, she is heard to mumble to herself. One of the waitresses has had a chance to peep into the woman's notebook.
The woman spends much of her time in the restaurant on recollecting the past or on having fantasies, or so the waitress supposes. The woman cannot get rid of a sinister suspicion that her "free time" may have been provided all along by what has actually been appropriating her time. If it is true that her "free time" is only a convenient tool which has ultimately been serving to constrain her freedom, what should she do?
