Based on a 14th-century noh play with the same title, Hanjo, by provocative Japanese author Yukio Mishima (1925-1970), is a timeless tale of love, loneliness and betrayal. New York’s beloved SITI Company unveils Mishima’s story as a bilingual triptych in which the actors rotate through each character role. The production weaves noh theater’s elegance, expressiveness and economy, together with techniques of contemporary theater, to shed light on identity, gender, language, and ultimately the art of acting. Performed in English and Japanese.
