Have you ever fallen in love with a film star? Have they ever loved you back?
The benshi were live narrators of silent films in Japan, until the ‘talkies’ wiped them out. Now, thanks to playful theatre mavericks Stan’s Cafe shooting a silent film in Tokyo, the benshi is back!
Join him as he tells the story of Shadows and its fictional cast. Watch as he falls in love with the star and tries ever more desperately to change the course of the film in order to ensure his love is reciprocated. Witty, poetic and subversive.
Stan’s Cafe is an internationally acclaimed theatre company with a penchant for creating inventive and mind-stretching productions using a variety of art forms. The company has been devising and touring highly original theatre around the world from its base in Birmingham since 1991.
