This show, presented by Kyoto’s Gekidan Shiyouyo theatre group, is inspired by a Mongolian legend ‘Suho’s White Horse’. Having been killed by an evil lord, the spirit of a horse returns in a dream to its young owner. The horse commands the boy to turn his bones, skin and horsehair into an instrument- the Mongolian morin khuur. The show promises to be loud and dynamic with songs, shouting, live music and megaphones. The running time is approximately 80 minutes.
