F/T15 Cultural Centre of Fujimi City, Kikari Fujimi “A Typhoon’s Tale”
This event has ended.
An award-winning Japanese-Korean team return with a new interpretation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. Fresh from their successful partnership with “Karumegi” (2013), which adapted Chekhov’s “The Seagull” to colonial Korea, Japanese director Junnosuke Tada and Korean playwright Kiwoong Sung return with a new interpretation of a stage classic. Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” is the inspiration for this tale of an early twentieth-century Korean king, exiled to an island in the South China Sea. One day, with the help of the sprites on the island, he conjures up a magical typhoon to lure his enemies to the isle to seek his revenge. Japanese and Korean history deftly overlaps with Shakespeare’s story of reconciliation in this illuminating adaptation.
