Kafka on the Shore play in Osaka, June 21st to 24th
Yukio Ninagawa’s adaption of Haruki Murakami’s novel, starring Yuya Yagira (as Kafka) and Katsumi Kiba (as Nakata) is currently being premiered at Saitama Arts Center - but only until Sunday, May 20th. The next known dates are for Theatre Brava in Osaka, running from June 21st to June 24th.
Apparently the play is four hours in lenght. They have a Facebook page and a Twitter (both in Japanese only).
Yukio Ninagawa: “I tried as much as possible to present audiences with multiple-layered sets giving alternative visual information about the labyrinth that was hiding — or lurking — in the text of ‘Kafka on the Shore’.”
“I hope Murakami won’t see this play, if that’s possible.”
One of my favorite Murakami books. I love the fact that there’s a person in a cat suit talking to Nakata. Wish I could see this play!
