The Japan Society has an allocation of tickets superbly situated in the stalls to see Shun-Kin directed by Simon McBurney of Complicite as well as an EXCLUSIVE post-show reception with members of the cast and company.
If you are already planning to go to see Shun-Kin and would like to come to the reception that may be possible, space permitting. Inspired by the work of one of the most important Japanese writers of the twentieth century, Jun’ichiro Tanizaki, Shun-kin tells the tale of devotion, passion and power, where beauty is unforgiving and love is blinding. Moving between the neon glow of Japan and the vanished world of Meiji, Shun-kin discovers the moments of light in a world of darkness. Emerging from traditional Japanese culture, this powerful performance shows us just how close beauty and violence can really be.Under the artistic direction of Simon McBurney, Complicite is one of the world’s leading theatre companies. Shun-kin is the second collaboration with the Setagaya Public Theatre, Tokyo. It is performed by an entirely Japanese cast including film actress Eri Fukatsu.
