‘Wong Temple Monks’ in Kijimuna Festa 2017

The Iranian play ‘Wong Temple Monks’ written by Mohammadreza Koohestani and directed by Ahmad Soleimani will participate in the 2017 Kijimuna Festa, Japan’s International Theater Festival for Young Audiences.
Soleimani will attend the Japanese festival next summer with three performances of the play which is currently on stage at Iranshahr Theater in Tehran, Mehr News Agency reported.
The play is the newest production of Eede (idea) Theater Company which was founded in 2006.
In the 2012 Kijimuna Festa, the company took part with the play ‘Last Supper’. “The festival organizers recently asked us to send them a DVD of our new production and we sent them ‘Wong Temple Monks’ which was approved for the next edition of the festival,” Soleimani said.
The festival is a yearly children’s theatrical festival in Okinawa, Japan. It is sponsored by the city of Okinawa and features content from around the world. It is named after the Kijimuna, a mythical creature who inhabits the trees and swamps of Okinawa.
Founded in 2005, the festival’s philosophy is closely tied to the Okinawan spirit through the theme of “theater is medicine for the soul”.
Today, Kijimuna has grown to become Asia’s largest youth-theater festival. Through continued international collaboration, it hopes to further inspire creativity in young people around the world. It will take place in Okinawa in July 2017.
Ali Farahnak, Majid Amiri, Hamid Lajevardi, Mohamad-Javad Piroozi, Mehdi Nikravesh and Masha’allah Koohestani are the cast.
The play will be on stage through December 13 at Iranshahr Theater located at Art Garden, North Mousavi St., Taleqani St.
