“Zipang Graffiti 1613-2011”
Theatrical company Warabi-za
"After the Keicho Tsunami of 1611, a ship crosses the ocean. Based on folk traditions and using a variety of expressions to portray the modern mind, the theater troupe ""Warabiza"" presents an original work that portrays the human condition from multiple perspectives against the backdrop of the historical events of the Keicho Sanriku Earthquake and the Keicho Mission to Europe that set sail from Ishinomaki two years later. The ups and downs and the spectacular structure of the stage are highly entertaining, as is typical of Warabiza, which makes full use of song, dance, and various physical expressions. The musical portrays people who have regained hope and are living their lives, overlapping the thoughts of recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake.
