Amaterasu – Out of the Cave: Work in Progress

Devised by the company

When they immigrated to Britain, Emi was almost a teenager while Aya was still an infant.

Years later, the sisters find themselves trapped together, forced to confront the differences in their childhoods, their values, and their memories.

Amaterasu – Out of the Cave is a contemporary folktale inspired by the Shinto myth of the Japanese Sun Goddess and the God of Sea and Disease. In a vibrant collision of new writing, Taiko Drumming, and movement, Papergang Theatre bring you an epic new tale exploring identity, family, history, and the caves – internal and external – that we hide in to survive them.

This show is part of Arcola’s festival of outdoor art and performance, Today I’m Wiser. Explore the full programme →
