„Nō Theater“ on February 27
The Japanese director and author Toshiki Okada writes plays about a Japan that is shaped by the influences of global capitalism. Bridging tradition and modernity, he unites ordinary situations with a choreographic form that makes the present appear strange. With the actors of the Münchner Kammerspiele he now seeks to adapt the most original form of Japanese theatre: Nō. He will use the classic structure of the Nō theatre and apply it to contemporary Japan. Which unredeemed ghosts are still waiting for their deaths? This is Toshiki Okada’s first production of a new work in Germany.
