St/ll: A Multimedia Staging Unfolding Time and Space
Why We Recommend it
Japan’s avant-garde contemporary artist Shiro Takatani defies the notion of time and space through his visually experimental stage production that combines dance, unconventional light and sound designs and images. Music is composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Marihiko Hara and Takuya Minami.
The stage is like a mirror to exhibit the reflection of massive projections and movement of actors, where audiences are transported to a hypnotic stage. The music and sound effects are created by composer and Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto, together with Marihiko Hara and Takuya Minami. Japanese actress Mayu Tsuruta, a nominee for the Best Supporting Actress in the Japan Academy Film Prize, also participates in the performance. The programme was premiered in France in 2015 and was then taken on tour to Belgium, Italy, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore.
The performance is companioned by a post-performance meet-the-artist session (in Japanese and Cantonese) on 20 September 2019.
Please note that the performance is conducted in Japanese and English.
