Although this world is simple, made by sexual attraction and bitches, people are still convinced that difficult things are important in their head. At the end of the day, they can’t find what the important things are. “Into the Cave” is inspired by Harold Pinter’s one-act play, “The Lover” (1962). “Into the Cave” had its premiere in Japan in March 2016.
