Manga on Stage: A Tribute to Osamu Tezuka

23 February 2012 3:00 PM, PST | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

Hugo Glendinning ‘TeZuKa,’ inspired by Japanese cartoonist Osamu Tezuka, is on tour in Asia and Europe this year.

Streams of black ink drip down scroll-like screens, dancers mimic the strokes of a paintbrush and Shaolin monks play-fight. Set to a haunting score, these are just some of the scenes in the anime-inspired dance performance “TeZukA.”

The production tours across Europe and Asia this year, and brings to life the genre of comic books from Japan known as manga. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, »
