Electric Japan: Tomoco Kawaguchi
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Theatre director Tomoco Kawaguchi shares a taste of her original 4.48 Psychosis: A Contemporary Punk Opera.
Based on English playwright Sarah Kane’s extraordinary work, 4.48 Psychosis, and created with input from Kane expert Dr Nina Kane, this experimental punk-rock-opera features a cast of five: a dancer, an opera singer, an actress and two musicians.
4.48 Psychosis was Kane’s last play, though she died at the age of 28 without ever seeing it performed. Made up of 24 vivid and raw scenes, it was her most fragmented work and one for which she gave no indication of the number of actors required.
