Tokyo Fugue : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Tokyo Fugue


Digital/Online Physical Theatre C Arts Digital

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.
