Description

Japanese Manga meets Yukio Mishima in a contemporary retelling of Kyogen and Noh plays

An irreverent, subversive and playful take on the traditional Kyogen and Noh plays, presented with a contemporary twist incorporating Japanese Folkloric Music and Dance.

Inspired on Zeami’s Aya No Tsuzumi, Busu and the Damask Drum was originally adapted by Yukio Mishima for the modern stage. Hailed as a double bill of miniature Japanese gems, Busu is a classic Kyogen farce and the Damask Drum is a tragic ghost story. This production takes an irreverent, playful approach on the traditional Japanese forms. It incorporates Awa Dance (Japanese summer folkloric dance), Taiko drumming, traditional Noh and contemporary Japanese practices to create a show that is fun, celebratory and thought-provoking.

Busu & The Damask Drum previews at Quay Arts & Soho Theatre London before it hits Scotland for the 70th anniversary celebrations of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
