Takayama Akira formed the creative collective Port B in 2002. He produces a wide range of works and projects that include tour-style performances, video installations, social experiments, discussions, and sightseeing tours. Underlying all of his work is the question, “What is theater?,” which he explores by expanding the possibilities of the medium and the ways in which it can engage society. Drawing on theories of spectatorship, Takayama proposes a form of theater that serves as a device enabling creative and thought-provoking encounters with parts of the city and society that remain invisible. In 2013, he founded Port Urban Research Center, which applies theatrical methods to tourism, urban planning, social practices, and media development, among other activities.

In response to the festival’s theme—“Taming Y/Our Passion”—Takayama will develop an urban project based on Aristotle’s Rhetoric, holding lectures, workshops, rehearsals, and more during the two-and-a-half months of the festival, and transforming the city of Nagoya into a stage for oration and performance.
