After bringing us such previous delights as Anatomy of Melancholy, The Just Price of Flowers, and Finger Trigger Bullet Gun, Stan’s Cafe return with their brand new production A Translation of Shadows, appearing at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Tuesday 3 November 2015.
Artistic Director James Yarker and filmmaker Oliver Clark travelled to Tokyo to shoot the film Shadows, which forms the foundation of the production. A Translation of Shadows follows the benshi, the live narrator of Japanese silent films, as he weaves his tale, drawing his audience under his spell, beseeching you to fall in love with him. When the lines between film and narration begin to blur, the audience are led to wonder what this mysterious character’s motives really are…
Based in Birmingham, currently at AE Harris in the Jewellery Quarter, Stan’s Cafe have been devising theatrical experiences in various media and unconventional settings, from swimming pools, to the back of a lorry, and touring their highly inventive work internationally since 1991.
Don’t miss the chance to see one of Birmingham’s best at work in A Translation of Shadows this autumn at Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
