Wind in the Pines

Sokai Salon are one of the two Japanese theatre groups that have come to Victoria’s 2012 Fringe Festival. Their show Wind in the Pines is a modernization of a traditional Japanese Noh play where two ghosts appear by a lonely pine on the shore. The piece explores what it means to wait and what it means to love.

Wind in the Pines begins with a short performance of the story in a traditional style, then presents the version modernized by Kazuhiro Tamaru.

The cast and crew from Wind in the Pines stopped by CFUV’s studio for a live interview on the show Women on Air. You can hear it below.

Wind in the Pines is performed in Japanese with subtitles. This show plays at St Andrew’s School Gym. To learn more about Sokai Salon visit windinthepines.wordpress.com.
