WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

SITI Company, the internationally acclaimed ensemble theater cofounded by famed American director Anne Bogart, showcases Yukio Mishima's mysterious and poetic play Hanjo, directed by SITI co-artistic director Leon Ingulsrud. Hanjo is a timeless tale of love, loneliness, and betrayal in which a young woman's endless waiting for her lover transports her into a state of insanity. Ingulsrud's direction unveils Mishima's story as a bilingual triptych in which the actors rotate through each character role. This brings Noh theater's elegance, expressiveness, and economy together with techniques of contemporary theater, shedding light on identity, gender, language, and ultimately the art of acting.
