Tasogare (between us) is a new play inspired by the 1927 novella Kappa by Japanese writer Ryūnosuke Akutagawa about a man who gets lost and ends up in the land of Kappa- a popular yokai. In Tasogare (between us) the characters Claire and Haruna are flying to Toronto and Tokyo respectively, but unknowingly land instead in the yokai world and have to navigate their way back.
