Form June 22nd to June 29th, the famous Japanese drama master Tadashi Suzuki and Scot Suzuki Company of Toga will make debut at NCPA to highlight two representative works Trojan Women and Dionysus.

From July 5th to July 8th, Deutsches Theater Berlin will present Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s representative work The Visit (Der Besuch der alten Dame).

This version of The Visit features strong German expressionist flavour, exaggerates character styles, deforms stage settings and current popular music as the background, and helps the classics sparkle modernity.

Photo

From August 11th to August 13th, the Chekhov International Theatre Festival production Twelfth Night will be wholly starred by male actors in Russian language.

Photo

This drama not only won Russian Gold Mask Award for Best Director, but also was recommended by The Guardian as five-star work.

Photo

From August 24th to August 27th, Uncle Vanya will be staged, directed by LI Liuyi and presented by Beijing People's Art Theater.

Photo

This famous drama, created by Russian dramatist Chekhov, demonstrates director’s distinctive personal style.

Photo

From August 23rd to August 27th, the Spanish creative humour physical theatre Papirus will convey funny points with body language, and use simple paper to play a drama with curiosity, tolerance and hope.
