Transfer Student

May 4, 2018 - May 6, 2018
Venue:Experience Theater (No.21-1, Zhongshan S. Rd.)

Oriza Hirata's Transfer Student is a classic among Japanese high-school dramas. Inspired by The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, this work speaks through the voices of 21 high school girls to express the restlessness and desires of youthful souls as well as their glimpses into and searches of identity. Formatted like the movements of a sonata, the four-act play presents a world of chaos as is but examines it in finer detail. Also clearly demonstrated are the simultaneous dialogues that identify the playwright's theatrical style.
