The 20th Theatre Magazine Prize | ELICA MIWA's IKI 三輪えり花の息
13th March 2019, I was invited to a ceremonial party for Japan Theatre Magazine Prize. My director Mme. Masako Okada has been chosen for her lifetime achievement in theatre, especially her latest world of "Moi Ota, le riviere d'Hiroshima" a French play, was well received. 向かって左から、三輪えり花(演出家・俳優・翻訳家・脚本家)、岡田正子(演出家・翻訳家)、湊恵美子(俳優・インド舞踊家)、みなもとごろう(劇評家) I was invited as performing Ota the title role of the play. Though Masako Okada is worldly well known in French theatre scene, and been knighted from the French government, recent Japanese theatre society looks little on her. Thus this prize from Theatre Magazine seeing her life time achievement in Japanese theatre is very very important. What she taught and introduced from French theatre, directly through Nicolas Bataille and Bella Reine, bore and inspired so may important people such as Tamasaburo Bando. I am honored to be there with her.
