'Ninagawa at 80 Season' from next week at the Barbican

Posted on 14 May 2015

The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation is delighted to be supporting the Ninagawa Company at the Barbican in Yukio Ninagawa’s 80th year. Ninagawa is Japan’s most internationally-celebrated theatre director, and tickets for his visually stunning productions are always in tremendous demand. London audiences have vivid memories of his Cymbeline at the Barbican in 2012. This year, he returns again to Hamlet, a play that clearly has a special significance for him; this is the seventh different production of it he has directed over his long career.

Over a career spanning 40 years, Fujiko Nakaya has pioneered the use of water vapour as a sculptural media. Nakaya has fabulous English, so it was not surprising to hear that she had gone to school in Chicago. Later on she returned to New York to study. In her entertaining talk at Tate Modern yesterday, 17 February 2015, she gave an overview of her work and also engaged in a question and answer session. She is effortlessly charming and humorous.
