Shochiku Grand Kabuki - Twelfth Night after William ShakespeareThe 'after' in the title of this Barbican production of Twelfth Night is fundamental to its style; it's not quintessential Shakespeare but for imagination and innovation, it's certainly theatre with a spark. Combining traditional Kabuki theatre with England's greatest playwright is a daring move by any standards but Japanese director Yukio Ninagawa is something of a genius and his historic Shakespeares have been heralded around the world for being among the most inspiring of interpretations. This is Ninagawa's first production in which he has worked specifically with Kabuki but he has experimented with the idea of rooting the stories in Japanese culture many times before. This approach imbues the play with a timeless beauty, freeing it from its Englishness and entering a colourful new world of striking visual poetry - expect a Twelfth Night that is Shakespearean in content but otherworldly in style.

In Japanese with English surtitles.
