The Plots of A Tyrant 另一夜,暴君的阴谋

As the world celebrates Shakespeare’s 400th Anniversary, Nyoba Kan has conceived a production based on William Shakespeare’s Richard III — with a Butoh injection and interpretation.

As passionate Butoh practitioners in Malaysia, we have a strong desire to communicate and interact with Japanese Butoh Artistes; to work, to collaborate and learn from one another, in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome in our work. Thus this year we have invited a young, up-and-coming Butoh artist Nobuyoshi Asai to work with us in this production, together with composer Yii Kah Hoe (Malaysia) & Max Riefer (Germany) and musician Ming-Yung Lee(South Korea) & vocalist, Anna Harley from USA.

The Plots of A Tyrant 另一夜,暴君的阴谋
based on William Shakespeare's Richard III

A reimagining of William Shakespeare’s Richard III — through the marriage of Butoh, music and classical theater.

The Plots of A Tyrant is presented with a non-linear narrative but nested structure, to reveal the truth of humanity.
