Modern Asia portrayed in Peer Gynts
—A journey to find your true identity in a challenging era
Leading edge Indonesian stage producer Yudi Ahmad Tajudin found a portrait of modern Asia in the story of the ever-wandering traveler Peer. Japanese dancer KAWAGUCHI Takao, composer MORINAGA Yasuhiro, and SPAC actor Micari join other artists from across Asia for the creating-while-traveling process of the play, moving from Indonesia to Tokyo to Shizuoka. Other SPAC actors will also join to launch the stage in Shizuoka.
