Happy Days is one of Samuel Beckett’s best-known plays. Artist Teppei Kaneuji designed this scenic art which looks like a mountain, where the lead actress (Tomoko Ando) continues talking earnestly whilst appears as if she were being buried in it. Kaneuji is known for his collage technique by pouring plaster or resin over everyday items after they are dismantled. Why does she keep talking in this condition where she is stuck and cannot move? Why is she buried in the mountain? This masterpiece by Beckett is reborn through a new translation, new interpretation and with a new stage setting.
