The poetic, comical and sometimes unsettling Tokyo Fugue makes its Camden Fringe debut 23 to 26 August 2018 at the Cockpit Theatre. Take a look at these mesmerising production photos and brand new digital art trailer – and then book those tickets!
Tokyo Fugue is a mesmerising piece of physical theatre about feeling lost, set in the maze-like train system of Tokyo. The scenes unfold like the variations of a fugue, in sequences of meticulously crafted movement.
You are on a train. You are searching for someone. You fall asleep. In your dream, you are on a train. You are searching for someone…
With three bodies and three chairs, a collage of Japanese and English text, a lullaby, a fugue and some train sounds, Tokyo Fugue conjures up the breathless experience of life in a modern metropolis. The audience is left breathless and wondering: what is it, after all, that I am chasing?
From physical theatre company tarinainanika, Tokyo Fugue is devised and performed by artistic directors Tania Coke, Kentaro Suyama and are joined by actor Toshihiko Nishimura. The show is supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
