The Red Candle -Mermaids in the East
"The Red Candle - Mermaids in the East" is a newly devised theatre production, based on a beautiful tragedy about mermaids in Japan originally conceived by Mimei Ogawa, who is known as Hans Christian Andersen in Japan.
The way the story is told is new and experimental pushing the boundaries of traditional methods. We take a minimalistic approach for the maximum theatrical effects accompanied by some traditional Japanese music. We aim to introduce Japanese culture in an authentic way within an intimate space, the Grand Entrance Hall at the Brunel Museum. Our initial inspiration was the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. However, the piece is echoing the grief caused by all other man-made and natural disasters that we had to experience in this turbulent times.
