Internationally noted theatre company’s first appearance in Yamaguchi
This is a stage performance by the Kyoto-based company Chiten.
Director and Chiten leader Motoi Miura presents his bold arrangement of a drama written by Shuntaro Matsubara, currently one of the most watched playwrights in Japan, based on Yamaguchi native folklorist Tsuneichi Miyamoto’s book The Forgotten Japanese and French novelist/critic Maurice Blanchot’s novel Awaiting Oblivion. Having premiered the piece to great acclaim at the Kanagawa Arts Theatre (KAAT) in 2017, this time Chiten take it to Yamaguchi for what will be their first ever performance here.
