Japanese theatre master Yukio Ninagawa returns to Esplanade after his sell-out samurai comedy Musashi with an adaptation of Murakami’s bewitching, spell-binding tale featuring an ensemble cast led by the Japan Academy Award-winning actress Rie Miyazawa, and noted actors Naohito Fujiki and Nino Furuhata.


Based on the work of Haruki Murakami, the 3 hours performance by Ninagawa Company (Japan) is an Esplanade Presents programme which will be performed in Japanese with English subtitles.



Date: 30 Oct - 1 Nov 2015

Duration: 3 hours (includes 20 min intermission)
Time: 8pm (30 & 31 October 2015), 2pm (1 November 2015)

A 15-year old boy runs away from home with an imaginary friend to escape a prophecy. An old man travels for the first time in his life to find a magic stone. Two parallel journeys collide and reality, myth and dream converge in a mind-bending tale set in modern-day Japan.
