This coproduction of Japanese theatre company, Theater Project Sapporo (TPS,) and Korean theatre company, Chungwoo, represents the harmonious collaboration between Japan and Korea! The love and affection shared by these neighbors play out atop a soundtrack by Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky.
In a village near Susukino in Sapporo, Hokkaido, one young Korean restaurateur and her neighbors live.
The Susukino locals live from hand to mouth yet have a happy and energetic life. One winter’s day, a Korean woman is moving to the Susukino community when the ‘crab incident’ occurs. A delivery service man misplaces an expensive king crab and must quickly replace it in order to fulfill the order. Where could those ten legs have carried it?
A Crab, a Woman and her Japanese Neighbors is the charming story of becoming true neighbors, constructing new alliances between old rivals, and forming bonds that transcends nationality when in pursuit of a crab.
