Thread Hell is playwright and director Kishida Rio's masterpiece of the Japanese avant-garde, or angura, movement. Poetic language and dark imagery weave a tale of female identity and give voice to the women in the textile mills, spinning thread and reinventing their personal histories in opposition to the strings that hold them in place. This award-winning play will be directed by Colleen Lanki, Artistic Director of TomoeArts, based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
