The Case of T&S 2020; Good Bye, Father


<<The Case of T&S; Good Bye Father>> was shown as a result of works shop which I was invited as a guest work shop a guest workshop leader on martial arts to investigate a relation between love and violence through working with martial art groups in Dili.

I was not sure what I could show next to the performance of violence by people from Timor-Leste. Only violence I can think of is that our family decided to watch my father’s death at home last year, and he suffered so much at the end of his life.Living in Japan, I don’t really see real violence in everyday life, rather violence does not take physical form anymore. For some people violence is a form of communication and entertainment, or we talk about harassment all the time. Japan is more or less in a peaceful state but I feel how we humans are helpless. We need to keep making new friends and learn from each other.


唯一の私が思いつく暴力といえば、昨年、私の父の死を家族で自宅で看取ったことです。父は人生の最後にとても苦し見ました。ビデオ作品<The Case of T&S 2020; Good Bye Father|お父さん、さようなら>>では父の最後の息を引き取るところを見せました。
