Tisa Chang gives keynote address at 2012 Asian Columbia Alumni event |
Pan Asian is proud to focus our 36th Season on Japan with Masterpiece productions and Plays in Process which build on our history of stories drawn from traditional root sources to examine morality, creation, temptation and loyalty.
DOJOJI: THE MAN INSIDE THE BELL pays tribute to the iconic Japanese legend about the Dojoji Temple seen in various Noh and Kabuki dance versions, popularized by Tamasaburo Bando’s incomparable transformation from woman spurned into demon serpent whose wrath leads to devastation. Pan Asian Rep has commissioned a new multi–media script for the next generation to experience this timeless parable that incorporates the design concept of sabi, with a visceral text and dance movement.
THREE TREES explores the relationship beween sculptor Alberto Giacometti who was a fixture of the French Existential art scene, Japanese philosopher Isaku Yanaihara, and Giacometti's wife, Annette. THREE TREES is set in Paris in the 1950’s and 60’s, where radical revolutions of thought were finding expression through art and culture.
Please watch for special events that will happen throughout the year!
