present Urashima Taro

Urashima Taro is a tragic and dreamlike fairytale for adults. Inspired by Japanese mythology, it tells the story of a young fisherman seduced by the charms of a mysterious and cruel turtle-woman.

Urashima Taro is a highly visual piece about power, seduction and death, with an underlying sense of humour. Aya Nakamura creates a mesmerising performance with the skillful and seamless meeting of actor and puppet.

Video projection, shadow play, puppetry and actor merge to create a fascinating story of lust, betrayal and loss.
