Thousand Years Waiting

Three simultaneous realities converge in the world premiere of Chiori Miyagawa’s Thousand Years Waiting. Intricately weaving together the history of storytelling like a spider’s web, a woman from present-day New York City steps in and out of real and fictional worlds from the past: Japan circa 1000 A.D. and The Tale of Genji, the world’s first novel.

This unique Trans-Pacific collaboration, conceived and directed by Sonoko Kawahara, features Otome Bunraku Puppet Master Masaya Kiritake, one of only three women in the world who professionally perform this rare 17th century traditional Japanese art form and marks the first time a Master will perform in an American play.

Original music by Bruce Odland.

Approximate running time: 1 hour 15 minutes.

February 23 – March 12, 2006
