Synchronized Walking by Yayoi Shimizu
6 men, 8 women
A struggling marathon runner finds herself living and training under a wheelchair-bound disabilities advocate in a hostel for women. There she finds single mothers, undocumented immigrants, and a tight community of homeless -- standing up against big government plans to build on their land for the Olympics, carried out by yakuza. An extraordinary play that offers a glimpse into the lives of the societally disenfranchised with warmth and humor.
