In conjunction with the 𝟭𝟮𝘁𝗵 𝗞𝗟 𝗕𝘂𝘁𝗼𝗵 𝗙𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝟮𝟬𝟭𝟵 舞踏祭, 𝗡𝘆𝗼𝗯𝗮 𝗞𝗮𝗻 and 𝗞𝗟 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝘆𝗲𝗿𝘀 are back with another multidisciplinary collaboration. Titled 𝘖𝘭𝘥 𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘳, it is one of two main highlight performances in the festival, which also includes a photography exhibition and Butoh workshop.
This time, the ensemble intimately explores and reimagines characters and themes from Shakespeare’s 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘳, and will also be collaborating with returning Japanese Butoh artist, Dai Matsuoka.
Through the words and perspectives of characters in 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘳, the production examines the struggles of human desire, and the role of human beings in relation to the universe. Through the spirit of ‘play’ and Butoh, it seeks new distilled and heightened expressions of the complexities experienced in the original play.
