Amon Miyamoto interview

I met with the loquacious Amon Miyamoto to talk about his new role as artistic director of the Kanagawa Arts Theatre (KAAT). The interview has been published in English on CNNgo (Japanese version here).

I had some initial doubts about the choice of Kinkakuji as the inaugural production at KAAT but Miyamoto very eloquently explained his reasons for production.

The forthcoming programme for KAAT is very varied. There is the esoteric (Bunraku from Hitoshi Sugimoto), the trendy (chelfitsch) and the more mainstream (Koki Mitani), so hopefully the venue should attract a good crowd. Kinkakuji at any rate is sold out.
