Tatsuya is busy rehearsing for his new theatre productions, but last week came the news of another stage he will be taking part in late this year:
‘Timon of Athens’ アテネのタイモン by William Shakespeare, will be showing between 15th – 29th December 2017 at the Saitama Arts Theatre, large hall.
Tatsuya will be playing Apemantus, a cynical and misanthropic philosopher. The production is one that the late, great Yukio Ninagawa had been working on as artistic director. Following Ninagawa’s wish, Kotaro Yoshida (pictured with Tatsuya) took over as 2nd artistic director last year.
“I believe he would be pleased” Tatsuya said of Ninagawa, that he would be watching down from heaven.
