SIGNED AND DATED 1985 BY SATO TO THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER. - Framed and Matted promotional poster for "Kabuki Medea" conceived, designed and directed by Shozo Sata. Performed at the Wisdom Bridge Theatre, Chicago. Conditioned. Not examined out of frame. Appears to be in perfect condition.
Sato’s next production, “Kabuki Medea” (1982), played at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Chicago’s Wisdom Bridge Theater, and at the Natal Performing Arts Center in Durbin, South Africa, winning awards from each. A Chicago Tribune critic was captivated by the play’s “boldly painted makeup and richly colored costumes for the principal actors and chorus, as well as elaborate puppets and hand props.” He added that the drama transported audiences “from a joyous wedding celebration to an underwater battle with a sea monster, to the ritual murder of Medea’s two children.”
