Rainy season. Tokyo. Akizuki is skipping class; Yukino should be at work.
When a student and an older woman meet by chance whilst seeking solace in a Japanese garden, their mutual feelings of alienation draw them together. But a truth is about to be uncovered. The friendship that could save them might also ruin them…
Based on the sterotype-defying Anime by world-renowned director Makoto Shinkai (your name.), The Garden of Words is a modern Tokyo tale inspired by ancient Man’yōshū poetry. The subtle drama explores invisible disability, loss of human connection in a digital world, and the moral line between platonic and romantic longing.
This interdisciplinary adaptation delves into Shinkai's visually emotive story through puppetry, movement and projection art.
Performed in English with occasional Japanese.
