Tadasu Takamine

Tadasu Takamine, who was born in Kagoshima, Japan, in 1968, began as a member of the influential Japanese multimedia-performance group Dumb Type, which has existed since the nineteen-eighties. He has now been active for over a decade as a freelance director and artist, and has devoted himself to a theatre practice that he develops experimentally in workshops in dialogue with local participants. Both in the theatre as well as in artistic projects, he grapples with gnawing social questions provocatively and with dark humor.
