Auto Da Fe at Baruch

Yet another show opening for APAP time is Josh Fox and International WOW’s staging of Masataka Matsuda’s AUTO DA FE at Baruch Performing Arts Center.

AUTO DA FE is Matsuda Masataka’s breathtakingly poetic new work. A soldier named Odysseus A returns from war to find the emotional and physical landscape of his home utterly altered and unrecognizable. The play originally produced in Kyoto and Tokyo, Japan, to much popular and critical acclaim, is a dreamscape of collective amnesia, life during wartime, the self conscious erasure of history and national identity, and a search for meaning and beauty.

You may have seen a partial staging at PRELUDE 2007! More info here.
