Theatrical performance of Serbian play in Tokyo


“Black Tent Theater”, an avant-guarde performance group from Japan, is planning to introduce a work of famed Serbian author, Ljubomir Simović, to audience in their Tokyo-based theater in October (from 8th till 18th). The play, known as "The Travelling Troupe Šopalović", is a successful and long running and has been performed numerous times in Serbia and around the world, ever since it was written in 1985.

We had a pleasure to hear more about this project and theatrical ties in general between our two countries during the visit of Black Tent representative, Mr. Hiroyuki Muneshige, to the Embassy. Mr. Muneshige has recently come back from Serbia, where he spent several months researching about contemporary performance art, which would help to a better understanding of Serbian culture in Japan.
