In May of last year, nine young directors staged excellent modern and contemporary Japanese works written in the 5s and 60s in a drama-reading format, drawing out the appeal of the works. "Reading Japanese".
As the second installment, this time, we will deliver it by three young directors.

Last time, Hindu 3 times received high acclaim for her bold production of "Death in the Morning."

Please enjoy their new charm and rich Japanese works.

★We have received comments from the director regarding the performance of the drama reading.

● “What is reading? I keep thinking about it.
Where is leading and where is it not?I don't think there is an answer.
Just perform in front of you.I don't want it to be something that requires you to close your eyes and listen carefully.
Read so much that it's a pity for the blink of an eye. (Hasegawa Yasushi)

● “Like last year, I will be in charge of directing 'Reading Japanese'.
With the help of skilled theater staff and wonderful actors,
This year, I will challenge the genius Shuji Terayama.Please stay tuned. (Takuya Senda)

● "I'm going to do a modest production. I don't want to destroy the richness of the old man's silence." (Akazawa Mook)
