Shun-kin
On from 30 Jan 2009 till 21 Feb 2009
Barbican
by Complicite/Simon McBurney
Genre(s): Drama, Classic

About: Shun-kin

Inspired by the work of one of the most important Japanese writers of the twentieth century, Jun'ichiro Tanizaki, Shun-kin tells the tale of devotion, passion and power, where beauty is unforgiving and love is blinding.

Moving between the neon glow of Japan and the vanished world of Meiji, Shun-kin discovers the moments of light in a world of darkness. Emerging from traditional Japanese culture, this powerful performance shows us just how close beauty and violence can really be.
