28th Nov. Reading performance ‘Resurgence’

About the performance

‘Resurgence’ is the new script for this reading performance. It is a sequel to the last reading performance ‘Magic / Witchcraft’ put on in January this year, so the contents of the two products unfold parallel to each other. (For more information on Reading performance ‘Magic’, go to ‘The end of video publicity of Reading performance ‘Magic’.)
Please make sure to see the new product by Yunosuke Takahashi which depicts a negative aspect of the modern society.

We will invite Mr. Ikuhiko Aoyama, an actor, and Ms. Nobue Hanabusa, a pianist, this time, and work out a more thrilling / sensational / stimulating theatrical space.

This performance is a project of Arts for the future (supporting subsidy projects of continuing cultural and artistic activities) adopted by Agency for Cultural Affairs. We will reduce the audience seats and deliver the video content online to prevent further spread of the infection. The digital content will be open for two weeks starting from 30th of November. Ticket holders are advised to see the performance within the period.
