Touring from April 2015
A new show commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre for 2015.
When silent film first arrived in Japan a narrator, called a Benshi, was employed to explain and interpret the movie. Though once stars in their own right the Benshi were eventually killed off by 'the talkies'.
But now the Benshi is back, giving you his opinion and insight, the benefit of his experience and his words of wisdom as he guides you through a brand new silent film called 'The Shadows'.
