The production will be directed by Suzuki Matsuo, who is the executive director of Otona Keikaku and the artistic director of Theater Cocoon, and who became a professor at the Performing Arts Research Center at Kyoto University of the Arts in 2023.
“Kamata March” is Kouhei Tsuka’s timeless masterpiece. Set in a movie studio, this action drama is filled with humanity and depicts the strange friendship between a star and a big-time actor, as well as the actress who oscillates between them. In 1980, he won the 15th Kinokuniya Drama Award. It was later made into a novel and a movie, and the novel won the 86th Naoki Prize, and the movie won many awards in the film industry, including the 6th Japan Academy Award. Please look forward to seeing how Suzuki Matsuo will direct Kouhei Tsuka’s work. Suzuki Matsuo (director) profile

About Kyoto Arts Theater (Shunjuza/studio21)
Opened in 2001 within Kyoto University of Art and Design (currently Kyoto University of Arts), it is the first full-fledged university-run theater at a higher education institution in Japan. It consists of two completely different types of spaces: Shunjuza, a large theater created primarily for the performance of Kabuki, and studio 21, a small theater created primarily for the performance of contemporary theater and dance. It boasts facilities that can cover a wide range of contemporary performing arts, from traditional theater and performing arts to cutting-edge multimedia performances.
Through performing arts, we are disseminating Kyoto’s traditions and creativity to the whole country and the world.
