A PlayCo Universal Voices Commission

PlayCo commissioned Aya for a new original play after producing her brilliant translation of Toshiki Okada’s play ENJOY in 2010. She has devised a beautiful, haunting and magical piece that pulls you into uncharted territory where memory, fantasy and virtual reality swirl together. Three intertwining stories, from the past, present and future, tap into our deepest impressions of living in tumultuous times as nature and technology evolve out of our control, and explore the eternal drive for human connection.

“Ambitious. Beautifully conceived. Ms. Ogawa has big ideas, both in terms of the writing and how to stage it. The play shows how the simulated can adjoin, infuse or ultimately replace the actual.”

New York Times

BEST BET! “Acute and aesthetically arresting. Not just an experience of theater but an experience of witnessing what it is like to be alive. You’ve gotta go.” 

Theatre is Easy

Ludic Proxy is surely the very sort of downtown theater that should be supported by bold companies and even bolder audiences who want to encourage new voices.”

Huffington Post

“Ogawa’s writing is enchanting and poetic, deeply in tune with the spirit of many different cultures. Spectacular design work.”
