A Doll’s house

Is the story of Nora’s determination to be left in the past? Or…
The brand-new direction by MIYAGI Satoshi, this sensational masterpiece from over a century will evoke our soul!

 
It’s almost Christmas, and Nora is in a festive mood. She has adorable children, and a kind, gentle husband, Helmer. Helmer’s business is progressing very well. One day, however, Helmer’s subordinate, Krogstad comes to visit Nora, and reveals her deep secret. In a wake of the divulgence, Nora comes to realize that she has been treated just like a doll, and…
This great social play by “the father of realism” Henrik Johan Ibsen had a large impact on the global feminist movement. MIYAGI, the director, boldly changed the setting of the play from Europe to Japan in 1935. The innovative interpretation is certainly worth witnessing in the theatre!

*Performance in Japanese with English subtitles.

【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 Boulbon. 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.

RichardⅡ

A hidden masterpiece by Shakespeare…. This is a story about us in the world infested with fake news.

A tyrant who considers that the end justifies the means, and a new king who rises to the pinnacle of power—who killed the tyrant? The story of Richard II of England, packed with the entertainment of a historical play by Shakespeare sheds light on our modern society, where people are still at the mercy of falsehoods, plagues, and wars.

【Profile】

Jean LAMBERT-WILD

Lambert-wild was born in 1972 in Réunion, a French island territory located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of South India. He is a playwright, director, and actor. Lambert-wild has cultivated his poetic power of imagination through the unique environment of his upbringing, and his magical knack for direction has become highly esteemed. His young age belies his long and impressive history of supervising a wide array of national theater centers across France. Some of his most representative works include a fantasized autobiographical epic titled “The Hypogeum (The Underground Tomb),” “The Molting,” a piece he created alongside indigenous peoples of Brazil, an adaptation of “Waiting for Godot,” and more. In 2014, Lambert-wild received the ‘Chevalier’ (knight) medallion prize from the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. To date, SPAC has presented three programs directed by him: “The Goat of Monsieur Seguin” (2011), “Splendor and Lassitude of Captain Iwatani Izumi” (2014), “Richard III – Loyalty binds me”(2018) and, YOTARO AU PAYS DES YŌKAIS(2019,2020).

Peer Gynt

The opening show of “SPAC AUTUMN-SPRING 2022-2023”, is the phenomenal adventure “Peer Gynt” written by Norwegian great author Henrik IBSEN based on Nordic folklore. You will experience the tremendous journey of Peer with grand live musical performances by the actors. The director MIYAGI Satoshi depicts untold analogies between this 150 years old closet drama and the history of Japan around the time the book was published; when the country was opening to the world.
The stage of this early masterpiece by MIYAGI and SPAC will finally come again after a period of ten years!

 

Directed by MIYAGI Satoshi
Written by Henrik Johan IBSEN
Translated by MORI Mitsuya
Music by TANAKAWA Hiroko

 
Outline of the story 
Peer Gynt, living with his mother Åse, is ridiculed by the whole village. He is a big-mouth daydreamer who has no hesitation in boasting that he will become an emperor, and goes on a rampage when drunk. Although he meets his destiny Solveig at the wedding of Ingrid, a landowner’s daughter, he runs off by kidnapping the bride. However, he soon gets rid of Ingrid and next tries to marry the daughter of the troll king, but fails to become a troll himself and flees back to his village. Although Peer is expelled from his home village and about to starts living in the forest alone, Solveig arrives to Peer after leaving everything behind to live with him.

【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 Boulbon. 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.

Setting out from a remote corner of Norway, free-spirited Peer Gynt travels all around the world.
MIYAGI Satoshi consolidated the tale of Peer Gynt’s roller-coaster life with story of Japanese turbulent history during the Meiji era, around the time when the original story was written.
Characters will race around the stage full of boardgame-mimicked mechanisms!

At Shizuoka Arts Theatre

In Japanese

Harpagon, a stingy merchant, falls in love with a poor girl? And she is his son’s lover? Is it about money, or love? The representative work of Molière, the king of comedy, is reborn as a completely new, piquant slapstick by a team comprising Jean Lambert-Wild, who is a French director, and actors of SPAC, following their previous project “Yotaro Au Pays Des Yōkai.”

Directed by Jean LAMBERT-WILD
Written by Molière
Performed by OHTAKA Kouichi, KIUCHI Kotoko, KIJIMA Tsuyoshi, NAGAI Kenji, NAGAI Sayako, HONDA Maki, MISHIMA Keita, MIYAGISHIMA Haruka, YAMAZAKI Koji,YOSHIUE Soichiro

Director’s Profile
Jean LAMBERT-WILD

Lambert-wild was born in 1972 in Réunion, a French island territory located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of South India. He is a playwright, director, and actor. Lambert-wild has cultivated his poetic power of imagination through the unique environment of his upbringing, and his magical knack for direction has become highly esteemed. His young age belies his long and impressive history of supervising a wide array of national theater centers across France. Some of his most representative works include a fantasized autobiographical epic titled “The Hypogeum (The Underground Tomb),” “The Molting,” a piece he created alongside indigenous peoples of Brazil, an adaptation of “Waiting for Godot,” and more. In 2014, Lambert-wild received the ‘Chevalier’ (knight) medallion prize from the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. To date, SPAC has presented three programs directed by him: “The Goat of Monsieur Seguin” (2011), “Splendor and Lassitude of Captain Iwatani Izumi” (2014), “Richard III – Loyalty binds me”(2018) and, YOTARO AU PAYS DES YŌKAIS(2019,2020).

A story of greed and betrayal; A tyrant who uses any means for his own justice is forced to give up his power.
