About RASHOMON, the film:

Director : Akira Kurosawa
Accolades : This film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, and also received an Academy Honorary Award at the 24th Academy Awards.

Synopsis : The film depicts the murder of a Samurai and the rape of his wife through the widely differing accounts of four witnesses, including the rapist and, through a medium, the dead man. The stories are mutually contradictory, leaving the viewer to determine which, if any, is the truth.

Language : In Japanese, with English Subtitles.


A warrior and his wife are ambushed by a bandit in a bamboo grove. The warrior is slain. His wife, raped. A hundred years later, at the ruins of the Rashomon, a medium calls out to the lost souls. 

Will the truth be known? 

From the team who brought you the sold-out musical If There’re Seasons…, The Theatre Practice returns with the acclaimed suspense thriller, Rashomon. 

Based on the classic short stories of Ryunosuke Akutagawa, this literary masterpiece dwells largely on the subjectivity of perception of the witnesses surrounding an episode of rape and murder in the bamboo grove. Rashomon is a timeless classic with a strong cultural resonance, inspiring and influencing countless adaptations on stage and screen. The most famous screen version won Akira Kurosawa the Golden Lion and the Academy Honorary Award.

With arresting visuals, a new structure of suspense, and stunning manga-inspired character designs, this reworking of Rashomon by The Theatre Practice’s Resident Director Kuo Jing Hong promises to be an entertaining and exciting theatrical experience not to be missed!

Understanding and living with Mother Earth : A Global Meditation

July 28, 2009
True change begins with each individual becoming accountable, not only for what is happening now but what will happen in the future.

True change begins with each individual becoming accountable, not only for what is happening now but what will happen in the future.

Join us, as we join the rest of the world in the hundreds of thousands, in a collective and conscious effort to heal Planet Earth.

We will sit in contemplation of the world that will be, in an hour of earthly creation with the highest degree of pure intention.

The time is to act now, especially when we know that the winds of change can be directed and this is our opportunity to consciously choose that direction of peace and abundance for Mother Earth and all its inhabitants.

Meditate, visualize and manifest peace and abundance for all.

This is the time when we see the world we choose to live in. See it in its entire splendor; and seeing even that which you could not believe to be true. Imagine in your mind a community sharing and caring for all. Imagine a world aplenty, utilizing systems that work hand-in-hand with our Earth for sustainable co-existence with humanity. See people’s needs and desires met in a loving, peaceful manner, co-operating in all so that it mutually benefits.

See it! Feel it! What does it look like? How does it feel like?

See the people in your life living in harmony. See the children of the world in comfort and delight, blessed with abundant choices. A co-operative humanity sharing a journey and seeing to the needs of all, including our great Mother Earth.

This is a movement for change, and it comes from a place of love and integrity. It demonstrates how many we are and that there is great strength in numbers. It brings a united front for those who know that we can make a difference in this world.

True change begins with each individual becoming accountable, not only for what is happening now but what will happen in the future.

When you align with others, you become a collective of very powerful creators. There are many changes coming for this world. The energy we hold as a collective will influence the outcome of those changes, but before we manifest more for ourselves we must put time and energy into manifesting a healthy planet and healthy people so that there will be things to enjoy in our future. We must unite in our similarities, and not dissolve our differences. Unite in the knowing that there is more-than-meets-the-eye.

Know that you can influence this time and space through your own actions and intentions.

Put your best foot forward; lay the plan of your intentions. It is up to each individual to find the way to incorporate living with selfless love and purity of intention everyday. =)

Love & Blessings!!!
p/s: If you can’t make it down, please participate wherever you may be, even if it is for a a shorter period of time.
