Fri 13 Jan - Ready for some English-language immersive theatre? Wide Eyed Theatre Companie presents A Faerie Tale. It's a promenade show in Nakano, it's not for children despite the name, and it looks really intriguing. It's on all weekend in Nakano, so reserve tickets now. Also tonight is This 'n' That Cafe: music and live art at Superdeluxe. Also in Roppongi tonight is Balls to the Wall Comedy at Tokyo Sports Cafe. And Trumbo and The Program are still screening as a double bill at lovely Ginrei Hall til the 20th.
Sat 14 Jan - Go see A Faerie Tale. Then there's stand up comedy at Vega Wine Bar in Ebisu tonight.
Sun 15 Jan - It's the last day of A Faerie Tale. And tonight in Asagaya, enjoy the Gamuso comedy show.
Mon 16 Jan - Here's something different: Harvard Glee Club is performing tonight.
Tue 17 Jan - Not much on today, it seems. I guess it's a cinema day.
Wed 18 Jan - The usual best place to be on a Wednesday: Good Heavens Comedy Club!
Thu 19 Jan - Tonight's comedy show is at Double Tall in Shibuya. Or if you're feeling scholarly, why not head to a public talk at a university - in English? Go to Sophia University to hear a talk on 'The insentient companion: some thoughts on dolls, robots, and significant otherness' which sounds intriguing, about techno-animism and the Japanese folklore concept of "tsukumogami", or spirits living in tools. Another interesting lecture tonight is at Hitotsubashi University and is called 'Rethinking Japanese Cinema' which is about the golden age of Japanese cinema and sounds really interesting. Both are free to attend. Enjoy!
