HIRO's LIED is a Dance Theater about the story of a Japanese mother with dementia. She lived with her daughter in Berlin for a long time. In her last few years she enjoyed singing an old Japanese folk song to her German caregivers. Yoriko Maeno met Hiro in 2019 in the day-care center in Berlin. Hiro's joy of her forgotten life created impressive moments with her own magic.

HIRO's LIED brings the everyday life of an old emigrant with dementia to the stage. It is an interplay of perceptions. Real worlds, fantasy worlds, moods and imaginary realities are mixed here. With Yumiko Yoshioka (mother) and Asuka J. Riedl (daughter), Yoriko Maeno brings a performance of theater, songs and a lot of dance to expression.
