When Lord Rosanjin dreams the demon Kitamura is coming to kill him, his horror is so profound that he hires two bodyguards to defend him against his own hallucinations. But are they who they appear? And what of the icy, repressed Lady Zuma and his petulant daughter Otsu? Something rots in the House of Rosanjin. For this mythic fever dream, Gotanda—revisiting one of his early works—collaborates with choreographer Katie Faulkner to weave a high and low brow tale of how love kills love.
