Backstage_Mag_Logo
“Exquisitely acted, “Three Trees” puts forth beautiful ideas concerning the transformative power of creating and inspiring art, the notion of a portrait as the container of a human spirit, and the confounding intersection of the aesthetic and the mundane in the everyday experience of an artist. Intelligently directed by Ernest Abuba, the production is entrancing...!

By Ernest Abuba
Directed by Tisa Chang
Choreography by and in collaboration with Sachiyo Ito  
  A forbidden relationship between a young woman and a monk that spans from the tumultuous banks of the Hidaka River, to the historic Dojoji temple, to modern day Harajuku in the Shibuya ward of Tokyo.

ETERNAL LOVE, DESTINY and power of TRANSFORMATION. From Pan Asian veteran artists comes a visually stunning reimagining of a classic tale.

New York Times logo
“a half-ancient, half-contemporary take on a classic Japanese myth...the time-hopping gives the production license to hop among genres and textures, from Ms. Ito’s striking classical dance, to martial art scenes” to “evocative” anime projections.
- Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
