The Seven Deadly Sins (JPN)

An adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s ballet chanté The Seven Deadly Sins.
Anna goes on a journey through seven cities and returns home, without
giving in to the seven deadly sins of Sloth, Pride, Wrath, Gluttony,
Lust, Greed, and Envy. This didactic story presents a biting critique
of the paradox inherent in capitalist society. Originally performed in
2015 with live accompaniment by four musicians, for TPAM 2018 it has
been re-imagined as a piece for only three performers, including
violin accompaniment by Ohta Keisuke.

 

Performers:
