Sonezaki Shinjû  creation - french premiere
bunraku
in japanese with surtitles in french

with the Festival d'Automne à Paris


(Double suicide at Sonezaki)


WE LOVED EACH OTHER SO MUCH
The bunraku, an extraordinary puppet theatre, in which the puppets are manipulated in plain sight to the sound of live music, magnifies life’s dramas and the throes of passion. This original creation, staged by famous photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto, reveals the tragic fate of a young man in love with a beautiful courtesan. For the first time, an exceptional and contemporary production of bunraku reinterprets a traditional play, a masterpiece of the Japanese classical theatre.
