“The world its shows is truth and there is no doubt that many messages essential to our lives are hidden in it. It`s just…reality is a weapon."


Inspired by The Day That Lightning Chased the Housewife: And Other Mysteries of Science.

CITA return with a vivid investigation based on a true story, into the pseudoscientific and the nature of truth and reality. Fusing movement and theatrical storytelling, CITA are proud to announce the world premiere of their newest devised theatre production EMOTO. CITA`s debut production in Hong Kong will be a new devised collaboration based on the life and research of Masaru Emoto .
But a CITA world is never as it first appears. Expect ingenious projection design, visceral movement in concert with our creative partners in Hong Kong, vibrant original sound design including works by Tadashi Westwood, intricate choreography and moments of stunning tenderness and beauty that shine out from shadows so brightly, they leave you reeling.

EMOTO will debut the first phase of this international collaboration in the Satohsakichisai Theatre Festival in Tokyo in March 2018.
