“I IS ANOTHER” – RIMBAUD IN AFRICA JAPANESE PREMIERE
Grusomhetens Teater´s 26th production, “I is another” – Rimbaud in Africa, will receive its Japanese premiere this autumn at Theater Xcai in Tokyo. Performing 28 September – 1 October 2017, this will be the 3rd time in a row that the company has performed at this venue, following the Japanese premieres of the company´s two world-premiere stagings by Ibsen: Fjeldfuglen (2015) and Svanhild (2016).
Conceived & directed by Lars Øyno, “I is another” – Rimbaud in Africa examines the life of the poet after they have left art behind. What does this say about the role of creativity and imagination in our world today?
Misako Ueda, artistic director of Theater Xcai, specifically requested this production to be the 3rd performance in a row presented in Japan by Grusomhetens Teater, and flew to Oslo earlier this year to see the closing night performance.
