On the trail of Edo‚Äôs famous old detective stories in Matsudo
Known for its radical “mistranslations” of Western and Eastern classics into contemporary everyday settings, Shigeki Nakano + Frankens returns to Festival/Tokyo for the first time in four years. This new work is based on the popular Kido Okamoto detective stories, “The Curious Casebook of Inspector Hanshichi,” which are richly steeped in the atmosphere of Edo (feudal-era Tokyo). Audiences will experience this site-specific adaptation in the city of Matsudo in Chiba Prefecture, which is separated from Tokyo by a river. Hunting for clues to solve a mysterious case, audiences travel between various unique locations in the city.
Shigeki Nakano + Frankens
Formed in 2003, this company has developed a unique style of freely adapting and arranging translated drama and theatre texts. Its unorthodox and revisionist approach has both enthralled and angered fans of the original plays. Since 2010, its output has also included applied drama activities outside of regular theatre spaces.
Director (Shigeki Nakano + Frankens)
Born in Tokyo in 1973, Shigeki Nakano teaches theatre at Nihon University. His recent work has focused on outreach, workshops and education as well as international exchange. His double bill “Yotsuya Zotanshu + Yotsuya Kaidan” was featured in Festival/Tokyo 2013.
