<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.

The Good Design Award presentation ceremony

The AKIRA ART WALL, which used the temporary barrier around the reconstruction site for Shibuya PARCO, selected best 100 of the Good Design Award 2018.


It is a collaboration between prominent Japanese manga creator and film director Katsuhiro Otomo’s renowned work, “AKIRA,” and collage artist Kosuke Kawamura.
PARCO installed the art production on the temporary barrier in October 2017, with the intention of creating excitement around the Via PARCO (Park Street) and Spain Hill areas during the construction period.
It received the award for its affinity with the Shibuya district, which is undergoing redevelopment, and for having attracted many visitors from in and outside Japan as a point of interest.
In February 2019, it will be changed to Art Wall Project No. 3, the largest project of its kind ever, communicating to the world that Shibuya is a flashpoint for art and culture.
