JAW: 遠西奇器述 (Translation: Concerning Strange Devices from the Distant West) by Naomi Iizuka

Portland Center Stage
July 24, 2009

Review by peanutduck

It’s easy to release imagination to the sweeping waves of metaphor; forceful characters; radiant yet lonely photographic, mythic, and linguistic imagery; delicate, mournful sounds of Naomi Iizuka’s polymorphous Japans. Eventually I got lost in the rapid-fire blackmails, time swapping, proliferate unveiling of untruths; occasionally Iizuka overwrites, unnecessarily explaining her story.
