Demon Lake

It is the Taisho era, where humans and sprits come and go in IZUMI Kyoka’s world of fantasy.
This very popular spectacle presented by MIYAGI Satoshi and SPAC will enthrall you with beautiful scenes and costumes, coupled with stirring live music!


 

Directed by MIYAGI Satoshi
Written by IZUMI Kyoka
Music: TANAKAWA Hiroko
Stage design: FUKASAWA Eri
Costume design: TAKEDA Toru

 

Outline of the story 
Long ago, the villagers made a promise with the dragon goddess of Yashagaike pond. “We will toll the bell three times a day, lest the dragon goddess leap out of the pond and flood the village…”
YAMAZAWA Gakuen visits the village and finds out that his old schoolmate HAGIWARA Akira, who had disappeared, has taken over the role of tolling the bell in the heart of the mountain after marrying Yuri, a young woman from the village. However, Lady Shirayuki, the dragon goddess who cannot leave the pond because of the promise, pines for her true love—the young lord of Senjagaike pond on the other side of the mountain—and tries to break the bell…
Meanwhile, in the drought-stricken village, the villagers are conspiring to sacrifice Yuri for the rain ritual.

【Profile】
MIYAGI Satoshi

Born in Tokyo in 1959, after studying aesthetics at Tokyo University under ODASHIMA Yushi, WATANABE Moriaki and HIDAKA Hachiro, he founded the KU NA’ UKA theater company in 1990 and soon began staging plays overseas as well as in Japan. As a result, MIYAGI’s work — in which he often fuses contemporary textual interpretations with physical techniques and patterns of Asian theatre — has long been acclaimed both at home and far beyond. Indeed, in 2004 he received the 3rd Asahi Performing Arts Award, and the next year the 2nd Asahi Beer Art Award. Since taking up his position with SPAC in April 2007, MIYAGI has staged many of his own works — including “Medea”, the Hindu epic “Mahabharata”, and “Peer Gynt” — and has invited artists from abroad to present pieces casting a keen eye on the modern world as they see it. In line with his aim to make theatre “a window to the world,” he has also started a new SPAC-based project aimed at the youth of Shizuoka. In 2014, MIYAGI was invited to the Festival d’Avignon, where he received excellent reviews for his open-air version of the Hindu epic “Mahabharata” staged in La Carrière de Bourbon. Following that landmark achievement, the festival extended the honor of inviting MIYAGI to present a Buddhist interpretation he created of the ancient Greek mythological tragedy “Antigone” as its super-prestigious opening program for 2017. On that occasion, which was the first time an Asian play had ever been selected to launch the festival, MIYAGI’s exalted “stage” was the open-air Cour d’honneur du Palais des papes (the Honor Court of the Palace of Popes). By the play’s end, those towering medieval stone walls were ringing out with long and splendid standing ovations welcoming the work’s director and creator along with SPAC’s actors and staff — while more than 60 European media all gave great reviews. In 2018, he received the 68th Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Art Encouragement Prize of Drama. Also he recieved “Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” from the Ministry of Culture of France in 2018.

The Cherry Orchard(Iwata)

Story of a landowner living in an illusion of her past,
and funny people gathering at her estate

his masterpiece by Chekhov that continues to be loved throughout the world is turned into an ephemeral but beautiful world on stage by Daniel Jeanneteau, a French stage director, together with selected French and Japanese actors. Conversations among people who visit the estate are humorous as they are incompatible, reminding the audience of a sweet-and-sour romance that we have all experienced at least once. This is the long-awaited fourth round of the collaboration between Jeanneteau and SPAC, who have established a relationship of deep trust through works such as Blasted by Sarah Kane (2009), The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams (2011), and The Blind by Maurice Maeterlinck (2015).

Republic of the Bees
La République des Abeilles

From flowers to stars; everything is connected.

Maurice Maeterlinck, the writer well known as the author of The Blue Bird, was also a competent beekeeper. Based on his essay The Life of the Bee, Céline Schaeffer, a French Director, vividly depicts a year in the life of a honeybee wrapped in mystery. The work, skillfully incorporating projection and dance, was re-created by SPAC in Japanese in 2020. It received a favorable reception as a theatrical play that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. Beautiful scenery that changes thorough the four seasons, and the life led by the honeybee—Look very carefully, and the voice of nature will invite you to join the adventure inside a beehive.

In 2019, she founded her company “Le mélodrOme,” and created the “Republic of the Bees,” first performed in Festival d’Avignon, which became a sensation.
