Through the eyes of a talking fish, a magical encounter of two girls across time and oceans tells a story of an eccentric family, incredible natural disaster and how to deal with your grandmother as a ghost. Japanese clown, Sachie, and an international team of artists bring you “Fish Saw,” a theatrical bilingual solo show with multimedia and original score. Imagine you are a child living in a mansion by the sea. And one day you realize your family runs the town’s official brothel. And your family also runs the legendary noodle shop from the same house. And what if, your great grandmother haunts the house after she dies because she wanted to eat more of that noodle soup! Fish Saw is based on my mother’s family in Japan and deeply inspired by the 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami that wiped out her hometown where all the stories transpire. Fish Saw takes you, the audience, to the early 1950’s and the present day Japan. And there you’ll meet characters such as The Little Girl, The Fish and The Hungry Ghost. There’s a love story, a clown, idea of life and death and more noodles.
