Nominated last year for the 60th Kishida Kunio Drama Award and winner of the 2016 Kyoto Culture Newcomer Prize, Akinori Yaginuma is the most-discussed playwright and director in Kyoto today along with his company, Karasuma Stroke Rock. This new play is based on Yaginuma’s “Fortress of Wind” series that was performed over the course of a year in Kyoto, examining questions of life and death in contemporary society through the figure of a woman who works at a fictitious hospice. It will be evocatively staged with a live orchestra.
