Timon of Athens (アテネのタイモン) – Tatsuya’s latest stage production – has been performed its opening night yesterday at the Sainokuni Saitama Arts Theater.
In this play, Tatsuya plays Apemantus. It is directed by Kotaro Yoshida (at the behest of the late Yukio Ninagawa), who also stars as Timon, who has worked with Tatsuya on many occasions…
“However, this is the first time I have directed him. Since the first day of rehearsal I was overwhelmed by his motivation and the power he brought to the role. I have said it before, but I really feel he is a truly wonderful actor”.
On Yoshida, Tatsuya said – “His directing is truly wonderful, succeeding Ninagawa’s will. Ninagawa san surely will say “Thank you, Kotaro.”I am playing opposite Yoshida as Timon, I feel it is a role that matches my personality. Since it has become an inspiring play, I hope many visitors will come and see it.”
