Japanese avant-garde theater to perform at YARAT
By Naila Huseynli
Uncle Vanya of the Chiten Theater,one of the most famous avant-garde theaters in Japan, will perform at the YARAT Contemporary Art Center on November 8.
The performance will take place within the M.A.P festival.
The artistic director of the theater, Motoi Miura adopts new boundaries of technique and directors in his performances.
By deliberately renouncing realism, he builds troupes' exercises and performances on improvisations, and creates intricate and complex scenes. Applying to classical literary sources, Miura also allows free speeches. He creates a unique collage through mixing replicas of characters, changing the sequence of scenes, and removing many images in the performance.
