About performance

The stage form of this production is loosely inspired by Japanese comic theatre Kyogen, in which minute stylisation dictates the choreography andvisual form of the play.

A Badger on the Pine comes from an ancient Japanese kwaidan or ghost story about a mighty spectre. The story, originally terrifying andmystical, is shifted toward a humorous tone.
