Live Theater @ the Japan Society

New York International Children's Film Festival

This weekend the Japan Society Presents: Adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s short story The mundane life of a young Japanese housewife plagued by insomnia offers a window into a haunting and beautiful sleep-deprived world. Obie Award-winning theater companies Ripe Time and The Play Company offer a physical theater piece adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story Sleep (Nemuri). New York-based director Rachel Dickstein leads a trailblazing creative team of women including text by Japanese-American playwright Naomi Iizuka and set design by Obie Award and 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner Mimi Lien. Sleep examines how we push against the constraints of everyday life, transgress and rebel, and free fall through broken boundaries set up by society. Original score by the NewBorn Trio.
