Last winter, we had Nick Ishimaru on the podcast to talk about A Noh Christmas Carol, a retelling of the classic tale with a mix of traditional Japanese theater forms of noh, kyogen, kabuki and avante garde dance. This year, Nick has another play set to release at the Theater of Yugen: Seen /By Everyone, which opens this week on October 5th. This production takes a look at how the world expresses emotions of grief and loss, but through the hyper-connected world of social media. We’ll talk to Nick about the production of the play, as well as how he brought the themes explored into the story.
