You are on a train. You are searching for someone.
You fall asleep. In your dream you are on a train.
You are searching for someone...
Tokyo Fugue is a mesmerising piece of physical theatre, set in the maze-like train system of Tokyo. The scenes unfold like the variations of a fugue, in sequences of meticulously crafted movement. With three bodies, three chairs, a collage of English and Japanese text, a lullaby, a fugue and some train sounds, Tokyo Fugue conjures up the dizzying experience of life in a modern metropolis. The audience is left breathless and wondering: what is it, after all, that I am chasing? At times poetic, at times comical, at times unsettling, this is theatre that speaks to the soul.

The Universal Language of the Body
In August and September we ran a programme of performances and workshops in the UK and Croatia, celebrating the Universal Language of the Body
Our aim was to raise awareness of the expressive power of the body and inspire people to use their bodies more creatively, both on stage and off.
We are deeply grateful to the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Japan Society who offered grants in support of parts of this project, and to those who so generously backed our crowdfunding campaign.
