Save the Date! UNSCRIPTED: KUROKO – June 8, 2019
What games do you play?
The kuroko in Kabuki theatre moves the set and props on stage, changing the environment for the central players. Dressed all in black, these figures are at once ignored, and crucial to the action on stage.
At Unscripted: Kuroko, join Tetsuro Shigematsufor a behind-the-scenes party exploring the world of his upcoming new play, Kuroko. Test virtual reality environments, discover the ideas that sparked Kuroko, and see a sneak peek of the play. Kuroko is a darkly comedic family drama about an agoraphobic daughter’s quest to find out the truth about her family. What makes us value our lives? How do we imagine a future when our options are running out? At the intersection of live performance and virtual reality experiment, Unscripted: Kuroko looks at the pros and cons of virtual versus real connection. Enjoy food, music, and conversations engaging with contemporary Japanese culture.
Unscripted: Kuroko is presented as part of the 2019 Magnetic North Theatre Festival.
