Spring Arts Festival 2008 The world is a stage!

In 1999, the 2nd Theatre Olympics took place in Shizuoka, and the first-rate performances which were gathered from all over the world captivated a lot of audience. This achievement led us to launch “Spring Arts Festival Shizuoka” in 2000. Since then, this festival has been received international attention. Last year, Satoshi Miyagi took over as artistic director from Tadashi Suzuki, and “Spring Arts Festival Shizuoka” also made a clear start. This year, we take you to the frontier of the world stage with 15 great performances from 10 countries.

“Spring Arts Festival Shizuoka” Map

You can’t talk about 2008 without coming to see these three performances! This line-up is beyond events: it’s a phenomenon.

  • Tadashi Suzuki captivated Russian spectators in coproduction with Taganka Theatre with this performance, Electra.
  • In Demon Lake, the artistic director of SPAC, Satoshi Miyagi, dramatizes the romantic and beautiful world of Yasha-ga-ike written by Kyoka Izumi.
  • Olivier Py, a super talented director from France, presents his masterpieces―Illusion Comic and Epistle to Young Actors.

You will discover the possibilities of human body in these three jaw-dropping worlds.

Both adults and kids cannot help loving these two superb entertainments!

  • Using masks and puppets, Korean company Tuida presents this bizarre yet familiar musical play, The Tale of Haruk.
  • Cameroon dancer/choreographer Merlin Nyakam is back with Récréation Primitive

Theatre is said to be a mirror which reflects the world. These five plays depict the truth of human beings on the earth. The truth we would never see in the news.

  • Rabih Mroué who already grabbed spectators’ attention at many arts festivals in Japan presents a political, experimental, yet, hysterical performance, Looking for a Missing Employee.
  • Legendary German actor Gert Voss plays Elizabeth II written by one of the best playwrights of the 20th century, Thomas Bernhard.
  • Talented Brazilian theatre artist Enrique Diaz reconstructs Chekov’s Seagull as Seagull―Play, dealing with “acting” itself.
  • Israeli veteran director Hanan Snir projects the fate of the modern Israel civilization on the gigantic world-view of Greek tragedy in Antigone.
  • Based on Tottori, Bird Theatre Company TOTTORI, led by Makoto Nakashima, richly dramatizes the world of the father of Chinese modern literature Lu Xung in Forging the Swards―out of “Old Tales Retold” written by Lu Xung.
