The thief, the wife and the lover: the theft, the rape and the murder. But who did what, and to whom? Do you believe the living or the dead?
Inspired by Kurosawa’s film and Akutagawa’s original story, Yellow Earth’s production of this classic Japanese “whodunnit” is a dynamic modern version, combining the company’s own brand of martial arts physical theatre with Kazuko Hohki’s unique musical style, celebrating Japan 2001.
