A prize-winning play about growing up.
Set in a “Bakemono Yashiki” or Monster shrine in the early Showa period. The main character is a doll whose master is a god. The doll has a series of exchanges with the other cast members (human actors). Through these exchanges she becomes more and more aware of the problems our society faces and grows consistently more anxious.
The play covers ideas around how as modern society grows ever more busy we are neglecting our relationships and the spirituality that connects us all.
The play is presented in Japanese so will be tricky to follow without a fluent level of Japanese.
The event is part of the Edomachi-Taito Entertainment Festival – details in English here: http://www.taitogeirakusai.com/en/index.html

23rd January: 19:00
24th – 26th January: 14:00 & 19:00
