Kinoshita-Kabuki began its Kyoto-focused activities in 2006, and its innovative style has made it a familiar name and talking point for anyone involved in theater in 2020.
The Kinoshita-Kabuki production of “Sanninkichisa” was supervised and adapted by troupe leader/dramaturg Yuichi Kinoshita, with direction and design by Kunio Sugihara. It was first performed as part of the Kyoto Experiment performing arts festival in 2014, and then the following year saw its first performance at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre’s Theatre West as part of the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre’s Geigeki Eyes series of performances in collaboration with young theater groups. During the first half of 2015 the work was nominated for the Yomiuri Theater Award.
This revival is a reworking by Yuichi Kinoshita with a new cast of up-and-coming young performers and veteran actors from the world of theater. Taking to the director’s chair again after directing the first production is Kunio Sugihara, who continues to direct classical works from Japan and overseas.
This is a full performance of all parts of “Sanninkichisa Kuruwa no Hatsugai,” a kabuki classic that emerged during the turbulence of the late Edo period and is still performed and appreciated today.
Audiences can expect to experience the world of Kinoshita-Kabuki at full throttle.
