Music Theatre performance – A Thousand Cranes by Noriko Tosaka
Published on Sep 15, 2022
In collaboration with the Consulate General of Japan in Edinburgh
We are delighted to have Noriko Tosaka, a designated teacher of Kristin Linklater Voice and a former actor at Takarazuka Revue from Japan.
Thanks to considerable support from Daiwa Anglo Japanese Foundation and the Consulate General of Japan in Edinburgh, Orkney Japan Association and Noriko had an opportunity to present a theatre performance ‘A Thousand Cranes’ by Kathryn Schultz Miller in Orkney this October.
A Thousand Cranes is based on the true story of a girl called Sadako Sasaki, a survivor of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima in 1945. In Japan, there is a legend that if you fold a thousand paper cranes, your wish becomes true. This story beautifully expresses Sadako’s innocent heart, friendship with her friends, and great sadness caused by war.
