UMS » Complicite and Setagaya Public Theatre: Shun-kin

This play looks so amazing. I want to go see it! September 18-21. From University Musical Society:
Inspired by the work of one of the most important Japanese writers of the 20th century, Jun’ichirō Tanizaki, Shun-kin tells a tale of devotion, passion, and power, where beauty is unforgiving and love is blinding. The domineering and beautiful Shun-kin, blinded as a young girl, is a brilliant player of theshamisen, a stringed instrument. Her devoted student and servant will do anything to share her world, ultimately becoming her lover and performing an astonishing act of self-sacrifice. This powerful production, seen only at the Lincoln Center, UCLA, and UMS, explores the relationship between master teacher and student, showing just how fraught that relationship can be.
In Japanese with English supertitles.Where does inspiration come from? What makes an artist tick? Join us for a post-performance Q&A and get a glimpse into the lives and minds of the artists that bring creativity to the stage. Must have a ticket to this evening’s performance to attend.
