Pre-show talk by Rev. Shunjo Ono

We are honoured to be joined by Rev. Shunjo Ono, head monk of Dojoji Temple for the Dojoji 2016 UK tour.

Mr. Ono will give a fascinating talk in English on the legend of Dojoji and its central characters, Anchin and Kiyohime.

With the ancient Dojoji scrolls that depict the legend, he'll tell the story and explain how it links with both Shinto - the ethnic religion of Japan, and Buddhism.

Hearing and seeing the story first-hand from Mr. Ono will be an elightening experience in itself, but will also greatly enrich the audience's understanding of performance.
