A 15-year old boy runs away from home with an imaginary friend to escape a prophecy.
An old man travels for the first time in his life to find a magic stone. Two parallel journeys collide and reality, myth and dream converge in a mind-bending tale set in modern-day Japan.
After delighting Singapore audiences with his sold-out samurai comedy Musashi, celebrated Japanese theatre icon Yukio Ninagawa returns with a striking theatrical adaptation of much-beloved author Haruki Murakami’s Kafka on the Shore. The bewitching tale, vividly presented against a series of multilayered sets, features an ensemble cast led by the Japan Academy Award-winning Rie Miyazawa (The Twilight Samurai), and noted actors Naohito Fujiki and Nino Furuhata.
Murakami’s characters inhabit a magical, surrealistic world brought stunningly to life through the sure hand of a theatre master.
