Akira Kurosawa’s seminal film, Rashomon, set a new standard for storytelling by using the non-linear narrative and the unreliable narrator. Locally, The Actors Studio’s stage adaptation of the classic film has been staged three times, and represents the company’s 30-year-collaboration with The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur. Now, with Rashomon returning to the stage here for the fourth time, we speak to the folks behind the production on the story as a cultural phenomenon, and why it continues to fascinate audiences worldwide.
