Tokyo Fugue : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Tokyo Fugue


tarinainanika with C ARTS

See tickets below


A mesmerising piece of physical theatre, set in the maze-like train system of Tokyo. The scenes unfold like the variations of a fugue, in sequences of meticulously crafted movement. With three bodies and three chairs, the piece conjures up the dizzying experience of life in a modern metropolis. The audience is left breathless and wondering: what is it, after all, that I am chasing? At times poetic, at times comical, at times unsettling, this is theatre that speaks to the soul.

Performed with some English and some Japanese, and subtitles in the opposite of these two language to the spoken text
