Théatre Lapis, led by artistic director Yojiro Ichikawa, premiered in New York, Spring 2012, with the musical Ordinary Days, and in London, Summer 2013, with From Up Here. The company’s aim is to bridge many borders including those between musical, physical and straight theatres, western and eastern cultures, and other contexts where our differences might enhance our creative expressions.

With this fusion in mind, the company is delighted to present "The Red Candle – Mermaids in the East" with its moving narrative directed by Yojiro Ichikawa and adapted by Nozomi Abe from “The Mermaid and the Red Candles,” a beautiful tragedy about mermaids in Japan originally conceived by Mimei Ogawa who is known as Hans Christian Andersen in Japan.

We aim to introduce Japanese culture in an authentic way within an intimate space, the Grand Entrance Hall of the Brunel Museum. Our initial inspiration was the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. However, the piece is echoing the grief caused by all other man-made and natural disasters that we had to experience in this turbulent times.
