HANAKO: Desire & Other Secret Weapons
By Katherine Lyall-Watson & Caroline Dunphy.
Come on an electric, cross-cultural journey with the award-winning theatre-makers behind Motherland.
HANAKO plunges the audience into the hyper-realistic fantasy of a young Japanese girl journeying from the pages of a traditional Noh play into an imagined future-world as she attempts to escape the control of two warring adults from East and West, past and present.
Traditional Japan collides with contemporary urban culture, music, anime and fashion as the audience follows Hanako on her precarious journey into the future.
