We were once all untouched.

As time passes, we get covered with various films, get decorated with different things.

Eventually they become part of us. Good or bad, consciously or not..

Everything we obtained as it goes.

Do we make the most of it...?

“When together, it could be pleasant or could probably be irritating.

Yet that is how it is….”




Performed in July 2009 in Berlin as a part of Berlin Fashion Week.

"HAKO" in Japanese means box, supposing this particular space as a little "box" to lead the story.



The first production "STARE" from TANSIK was presented in July 2009 at theaterforum kreuzberg in Berlin, with our special guest artist Mr. Shuichi Chino who is currently based in Berlin.

The evening consisted of two experimental theater pieces with spacy and visual music as its main principal, with the attempt of using the instruments as a character.



Presented in October 2008 at ACUDtheater in Berlin and represented in February 2010 at theaterforum kreuzberg.
