Yoshimoto Imagawa

BOOSTER by PARCO launched a project to erect a bronze statue of Shizuoka City founder Yoshimoto Imagawa on the 500th anniversary of his birth.

The plan is to install the statue at the North Gate of JR Shizuoka Station, the main entry point to the city, as a symbol and as part of an initiative to reevaluate Yoshimotoʼs achievements and restore his place in history.
The project is running from July 23 to October 10 as a collaborating effort between the Shizuoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (the project owner) and PARCO, designed to support regional revitalization.
It is being jointly promoted by Matsuzakaya Shizuoka Store and Shizuoka PARCO.

<Theater> “A Doll’s House, Part 2”

Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” upset social conventions when it was first unveiled with an ending that painted a picture of women’s independence. Since then, the play has become a modern classic that continues to be performed around the world 140 years later.

 

PARCO staged the new play in August 2019, which is by emergent American playwright Lucas Hnath, and boldly continues the story in an ambitious work written for contemporary audiences.

 

Following “The Children” produced by PARCO, which won awards such as the 26th Yomiuri Theater Award, “A Doll’s House, Part 2” was an early challenger in the category of topical translated play.
