  • Gekisyoku-otonadan Nine Stray  Okinawans: After ’72

A highly acclaimed play portraying a theatre company dealing with the reversion of Okinawa to Japan in 1972, and showing the importance of dialogue between those with differing opinions

The year 2022 marked fifty years since Okinawa returned to Japanese sovereignty. Kyoto audiences now have their first chance to catch this play staged by an Okinawa-based playwright, director, and cast of performers, and which won the top prize at the CoRich Performing Arts Festival Spring 2022.

Premiered in 2015, it portrays rehearsals by a theatre company for a performance of a play about the reversion of Okinawa to Japan in 1972. Shuttling between the present and 1972, Nine Stray Okinawans reveals the inner emotions and varied and complex attitudes of the people living in Okinawa both today and in the past.
