Kafka on the Shore

Kafka on the Shore

Here the borders between reality, dream and myth are constantly crossed

Overview

Meet 15-year-old Kafka. Accompanied only by an imaginary friend, he’s run away from his Tokyo home to escape his screwed-up father and a dark prophecy. Then there’s elderly Nakata, seeker of lost cats. Long touched by a mysterious childhood affliction, he now finds himself in need of some divine assistance.

Setting the epic in a series of multilayered sets, Yukio Ninagawa realises his long-held ambition to relocate Haruki Murakami’s text to the stage. He leads a first-class ensemble including the Japanese Academy Award-winning star of The Twilight Samurai, Rie Miyazawa.
