About the show:

When they immigrated to Britain, Emi was almost a teenager while Aya was still an infant.Years later, the sisters find themselves trapped together, forced to confront the differences in their childhoods, their values, and their memories.


Amaterasu – Out of the Cave is a contemporary folktale inspired by the Shinto myth of the Japanese Sun Goddess and the God of Sea and Disease. In a vibrant collision of new writing, Taiko Drumming, and movement, Papergang Theatre bring you an epic new tale exploring identity, family, history, and the caves that we hide in to survive them.
