By Keralino Sandorovich
A desolate island in the South Seas. A pair of twin sisters, their blind stepmother, two friends who plot the murder of one of the twins, and a ¥5 million giraffe statuette. The hilarity and violence that ensue are the subject of Frozen Beach, a black comedy/ horror/coming-of-age play by Japanese playwright Keralino Sandorovich, and the 1999 winner of the prestigious Kishida Kunio Prize. Sandorovich, fondly known as “Kera,” is the leader of his theater company Nylon 100°C, for which he writes and directs.
In addition to his distinguished theater career, Kera is an indie-rocker, filmmaker, actor and columnist. Frozen Beach will be translated into English and directed by New York-based writer/director Aya Ogawa, founder and Artistic Director of knife, inc., resident artist at HERE Arts Center and a Usual Suspect at New York Theater Workshop. The reading will be followed by a discussion with the artists.
