WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Enter the mysterious world of blind Shamisen player Shun-kin and her devoted servant Sasuke in this startling performance based on the texts of celebrated Japanese author Jun'ichiro Tanizaki. Exploring the connections between beauty and violence, this powerful production brings to life a haunting love story. Shun-kin returns to the Barbican following its success in 2009 and is performed by a Japanese cast, including film actress Eri Fukatsu and celebrated actor Yoshi Oida. Led by award-winning Artistic Director Simon McBurney, Complicite has created ground-breaking devised work which has toured the world since 1983.
