Story of a Tiger

¥1,000 (on the door)

Based on Italian playwright Dario Fo’s dramatic monologue, the play is inspired
by the 2011 Malawi protests against the government which resulted in 20 deaths and nearly 100 injuries.

The story begins with a demonstration in Malawi: people rallying against corruption, police brutality, and nepotism. The demonstration turns into a revolt, and one of the demonstrators gets shot in the leg. Fleeing into a nearby cave, he meets a tigress and a cub.

What appears to at first be a threat turns out to be an encounter with affection and a newfound source of strength. Recovered from his injuries, the demonstrator returns to the city with new courage and determination to fight against the oppressors of his homeland with all of the forces available to him, together with his new allies.

Performed in English each day will see a different rival Japanese actor taking to the stage before Mbene to do a Japanese equivalent of the same play
.
Malawian tea/coffee will be offered during the performances and a short photo-talk on Malawi will be given by Asahi Camera journalist Mr. Yuichi Iwasaki.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
