The Shadow Game

By the Dazzle Company, written by Koichiro Iizuka and directed by Tatsuya Hasegawa

‘… a creative reading of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami which caused the nuclear crisis at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.’

‘It is a magnificent combination of dance, music and theater. There are elements of video games and anime plot with Japanese commentary all wrapped up in street and contemporary dance styles choreographed by Hasegawa himself. The Shadow Game is as much a balance between dance and performance as its plot is between light and shadow.’
