“Suzuki’s Theatre Class for Young Theatre Artists”
Director Suzuki will show rehearsals of Cinderella, and discuss his theories of theatre and directing to young artists who aim to lead the future theatre world. Free admission.


After founding the Waseda Shogekijo in 1966 in Shinjuku, Suzuki Tadashi moved his troupe to Toga Village, Toyama in 1976 and renamed it SCOT. Many of SCOT’s most important works, such as Dionysus and Greetings from the Edge of the Earth, were born in Toga. These works have been invited and performed all over the world, and the company has become a representative of modern theatre in Japan, travelling and performing in 84 cities and 31 countries.
SCOT has also created a number of international collaborative works, such as King Lear with the Moscow Art Theatre, Electra with the Arko Arts Theater in Korea, and Cinderella with the Shanghai Theatre Academy.
