Director’s profile

Born in 1971, Worry KINOSHITA became involved with theatre as a student at Kobe University, where he founded the Gekidan Sekai Ichidan company (now named Sunday). He is known for being good at blending music and images into his work.
Kinoshita founded and produces the non-verbal performance company THE ORIGINAL TEMPO, with which he has gained a widespread following, especially overseas. At the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe, for instance, its “Shut Up, Play!” got a five-star review, and has been invited to more than 10 international theatre festivals.
