Event Details

Workshop with award-winning Peru-born Japanese director and playwright Yudai Kamisato

What happens when the stories are separated from both the original? What happens when they are translated and re-translated? In the workshop, participants will talk about strange events that they have experienced and what would happen if these stories transcended the region or country and moved or immigrated to another land? How does the story change when you change the place or language of the story?

Yudai Kamisato is an award-winning Japanese theatre playwright and director born in Peru. He creates works with the theme of crossing borders based on the episodes he collects while visiting various places in South America and Asia. He won the first prize in the Toga Directors Competition (2006) and the prestigious Kishida Kunio Prize for Drama for The Story of Descending the Long Slopes of Valparaíso (2018). He stayed in Argentina 2016-2017 on an overseas research grant from the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs. From 2022 to 2024 he was a Saison Fellow II of the Saison Foundation.
