World Premiere of Hanjo

New York’s beloved SITI Company unveils Yukio Mishima’s Hanjo as a bilingual triptych in which the actors rotate through each character role, in this timeless tale of love, loneliness and betrayal. The production weaves Noh theater’s elegance, expressiveness and economy, together with the techniques of contemporary theatre, to shed light on the nature of identity, gender, language, and ultimately the art of acting.
