Upcoming Projects

The Yokohama Theatre Group creates non-lingual and multi-lingual devised theatre. We’re always working on new projects, or redeveloping existing shows, and we’re eager to receive commissions or offers of collaboration.

Secret Project 2020

Civilization may be about to fall off a cliff. Or is it? Machinations are in progress, and we hope to bring you the answer soon.

We’re working on a secret, ongoing project that we hope to premiere in early 2020. We will be looking for collaborators (performers, musicians, comedians, etc.) who want to showcase new work with us. Stay tuned for further updates.

Untitled September 2020 Show

Creating shows the YTG way has always been about ongoing development of plays, but we so rarely get a chance to return to a theme. Next year we’ll be returning to the story of Shunkan, the Noh play that formed the heart of our 2014/2015 work Kikai-ga-shima.

During the Heian period, three men are exiled to a remote island as punishment for an attempted coup. In the present, two Canadians attempt to recount that story while their own identities conflict and collide.
