The Gate is a magical rollercoaster noir mystery tour through Japanese folklore. Directed by Saori Aoki, acclaimed for her work in Japan, USA, Canada and the UK. She started the Kaso Jogi (Virtual Ruler) theatre company to spread her unique fusion of traditional Japanese theatre with western influenced musical theatre, around the world. Audiences will be greeted by the striking original songs of Makoto Honda, and a mysterious gatekeeper welcoming “all ye corpses” with the suspect smile of one who might be an angel, a boatman on the Styx, or an emissary from hell. Breathtaking physical dance-theatre set to original music. This performance will be the world premiere English translation of this raucous adventure.

Created and Directed by Guest Artists from Japan’s Kaso Jogi Theatre Company; a Cultural Stages: Woodward International Drama & Dance Initiative Production, Written and Conceived by: Saori Aoki and the Kaso Jogi Theatre Company,  Music by Makoto Honda
